Environmental documents may be needed for various LADWP projects to assess environmental impacts. These documents need to be prepared in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and/or the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The preparation of environmental documents involves public disclosure to regulatory agencies and the general public to review the data, analysis, and conclusions reached in the environmental documents. Early in the planning of the environmental document, LADWP initiates tribal consultation under Assembly Bill (AB) 52. Refer to the following links to learn more information about the LADWP Environmental Planning and Assessment Group's Procedure for Tribal Consultation under Assembly Bill (AB) 52.

Below this section is a list of active projects, including project name, notice type, start of public review, and end of public review. Included is also the anticipated hearing date of when the Board of Water and Power Commissioners will adopt/certify the environmental document and approve the project (CEQA).
