CEQA deskbook: Third edition

At ICF, we understand the challenges our clients face to make their organizations more sustainable, remain in compliance with evolving environmental regulations, and balance competing interests—all while trying to achieve some pretty ambitious goals. That’s why they trust ICF consultants to provide the data-backed expertise they need to navigate these complexities and implement solutions and processes that make a meaningful difference.

Authored by ICF environmental experts, the CEQA Deskbook, 3rd edition was named 2014 Outstanding Environmental Resource Document by the Association of Environmental Professionals, California Chapter. The award citation called it, "a must have reference book for anybody in our profession!"

Visit the Solano Press website where this "soup to nuts" guide to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the environmental review process is sold. It contains easy-to-understand explanations of the key policies, players, procedures, and practices related to CEQA compliance. It takes the reader through the process from the Initial Study and Notice of Preparation all the way to agency decision-making and litigation. The book also explains how to prepare useful and legally sufficient environmental documents, including Negative Declarations, Mitigated Negative Declarations, and Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs).
