This Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) tiers from the Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Typical Recurring Actions Resulting from Flood, Earthquake, Fire, Rain, and Wind Disasters in California. This SEA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Compliance Act (NEPA) and FEMA’s regulations implementing NEPA. It identifies and evaluates the potential impacts of the proposed project on the human and natural environment.
