Environmental process

The environmental process will include evaluation of potential environmental impacts in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and other state and federal environmental regulations. The environmental process will include evaluation of design alternatives and assessments of potential impacts to the natural and human environment, including:

  • Vegetation.
  • Threated and endangered species.
  • Water resources.
  • Air quality.
  • Archeological resources.
  • Historic resources.
  • Hazardous materials.
  • Utilities.
  • Community impacts.
  • Environmental justice and limited english proficiency.
  • Access and travel patterns.
  • Visual impacts.

These assessments will be documented in technical reports, which will be available for public review at the time of the public hearing and will follow NEPA Process and other regulatory requirements.
