Uranium Leasing Program Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement Information Center

This Web site is the online center for public information and involvement in the Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for the Uranium Leasing Program.

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management (LM) has prepared a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for the DOE Uranium Leasing Program (ULP). DOE LM currently manages this uranium leasing program and administers thirty-one (31) lease tracts in the Uravan Mineral Belt in southwestern Colorado. Twenty-nine (29) of these lease tracts are actively held under lease. This Web site is the online center for public information and involvement in the PEIS process.

Consistent with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Council on Environmental Quality's (CEQ's) implementing regulations, an EIS is prepared when an agency's proposed actions may have significant impacts on the environment. A PEIS evaluates the environmental impacts of broad agency actions, such as those that may be associated with the ULP. Future NEPA documents may be prepared (tiered) from the PEIS process for individual site-specific actions, as appropriate.
