What is NISP? What is a supplemental draft environmental impact statement? Why should I care?
Colorado Water Institute at CSU has released an animated video to answer those questions—“NISP (and its SDEIS) IN A NUTSHELL.”
NISP is the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project, and the 1500 page SDEIS, released a month ago by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is a bit longer than most citizens have the time to read.
CSU hopes the video helps the public better understand the basics about the proposed storage project and the process set up by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to assess the environmental effects of proposed actions like NISP prior to making decisions about them.
