What Is A Phased Action For Environmental Impact Analysis?

Phased actions are often defined as two or more projects by the same proposer that will have environmental effects on the same geographic area and are substantially certain to be undertaken sequentially over a limited period of time. This definition usually involves three components:

  • Same proposer,
  • Same area affected, and
  • Timing.

The third component, the relative timing of the phases, involves the most uncertainty and therefore is often the most difficult component to apply.
