MELDING NATURE AND DEVELOPMENT.
All Phase Environmental offers you an additional service by completing NEPA Checklist reviews. These detailed research projects are required along with a Phase One ESA prior to the installation of communication tower sites pursuant to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations. The FCC requires potential adverse environmental impacts associated with the construction and operation of a proposed communication tower be assessed.
Some federally funded projects also require a NEPA checklist review as part of the Phase One ESA. The content of the NEPA checklist was developed by the US Environmental Protection Act to report potential adverse environmental impacts on plants, animals and cultural sites.
We will determine if the property is located in an officially designated wildlife preserve.
We will determine if the property is located in a flood plain.

Research will be done to determine if the property will affect districts, sites, buildings, structures or objects, significant in American history, architecture, archaeology, engineering or culture, that are listed, or eligible for listing, in the National Register of Historic Places.
We will determine if the project will require antenna towers and/or supporting structures equipped with high intensity white lights located in residential neighborhoods as defined by the applicable zoning law.
Research will be done to determine if the property will jeopardize the continued existence of any threatened or endangered species or critical habitats, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
