Orientation to Sustainable Environmental Assessment

Environmental review allows local government, federal funding agencies and other stakeholders to identify and evaluate alternative sites and designs that can mitigate adverse impacts and/or lower long-term maintenance costs.  All federal projects come with environmental assessment responsibilities under NEPA, and many local governments either have to meet the NEPA requirement because of the federal portion of funding and/or see the value of routinely including environmental considerations in their local decision making process.
