We Think This is Interesting

January 27, 2020

Last week we talked a little about some of the proposed changes to the NEPA regulations. To keep the post to a reasonable length we focused on the two biggest proposed changes. The elimination of the separate discussion on direct, indirect and cumulative impacts and th...

Last week we published a link to the Federal Register where the CEQ has posted their proposed rule changes to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). As I suspected, several firms (mostly attorneys) have taken the opportunity to wade through that document to see...

The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) is proposing to update its regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The current Administration is presenting this as means to modernize and clarify regulations to...

Back to Southern Arizona water related issues.....I saw this interview in the Sierra Vista Herald Tribune. It is reprinted in its entirety with a link to the article at the end. Holly Richter is a well-respected hydrologist and, much like I have found the rest of The N...

Another interesting article on water resources in Cochise County Arizona. This was actually posted on the NBCNews.com main page so it's a national article. It serves to again highlight the issues with groundwater availability, or more accurately, the lack thereof in So...

This is another excellent article by Shar Porier of the Sierra Vista Herald Tribune. Amazing to me this is not being followed more closely by the papers in Tucson or Phoenix given the statewide implications of drought and water shortages. I'm still at a loss for where...

August 15, 2019

I've got links to a couple of local articles here, Shar Poirer from the Sierra Vista Daily Herald, and Harry Brean from the Arizona Daily Star. Both discuss a decision by the Trump Administration to  delay border wall construction through three Arizona preserves as a f...
