Rebuild By Design – Meadowlands Project
Record of Decision (ROD), Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and Feasibility Study (FS)

As part of the environmental review process, DEP prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FEIS describes in detail the purpose and need for the project, the alternatives considered, the NEPA Preferred Alternative, anticipated environmental impacts, project benefits, and potential mitigation measures. The last step of the NEPA process includes posting the Record of Decision (ROD) that formally announces the Alternative 3 Build Plan as the Selected Alternative for implementation of the Project. The ROD further discloses that this Project will have impacts on the human environment, and identifies the mitigation measures and best management practices that the DEP will implement to avoid and minimize impacts to the extent practicable.
