This course is intended for engineers who are involved in projects that require environmental impact statements (EIS). Sometimes it is the engineer’s responsibility to write the EIS or to collaborate with others in writing it. On other projects, the EIS will be written by other professionals. However, in any case, it is important for the engineer to have an understanding of what is required and where the data constituting the statement is found.
The overall objective of this course is to provide an overview of the various components that go into writing environmental impact statements. When you complete this course you should be familiar with many sources of information that can be used in generating an EIS.
