This article provides information on how to file a Request for Environmental Review of a proposed tower or tower modification that an applicant has submitted in the Antenna Structure Registration (ASR) system. A Request for Environmental Review is considered a type of pleading. There is a separate help article about filing other types of Pleadings.
On or before the end of the 30-day posting period on the FCC website, you may submit a Request for Environmental Review if you believe that a proposed tower or tower modification may have a significant impact on the environment. You must serve a copy of your Request for Environmental Review on the applicant. Late-filed Requests for Environmental Review may be subject to dismissal.
Your Request for Environmental Review must state the specific reasons that you believe the proposed construction may have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment, as required under the Commission's rules, and also provide contact information for the person making the request. A Request should be supported by factual detail with respect to the location, nature, and extent of any potential significant impact. If the applicant submitted an Environmental Assessment (EA) with the application, your Request for Environmental Review must describe why the EA does not adequately evaluate potentially significant environmental impacts. Pleadings that do not meet these standards may be subject to dismissal.
