Performing a cumulative impact analysis that rigorously satisfies the regulatory requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) can be a challenging and resource-intensive task, particularly when preparing environmental assessments (EAs). A rigorous evaluation of cumulative impacts may require substantially more effort than is necessary to assess the direct and indirect impacts of an action. This article describes a new approach, referred to as the Cilix Method, that can provide a practical, streamlined, and defensible technique for assessing cumulative impacts in an EA. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
