First the items to be impacted are listed; then a quantitative judgement concerning both importance and magnitude of the impact is made. In Table 2-1, the items are only a sample of the impacts one would normally consider. The importance and magnitude are then multiplied and the sum obtained. Table 2-1. Potential impact Groundwater contamination Surface contamination Odor Noise Jobs provided Total Importance × magnitude 5 × 5 = 25 4 × 3 = 12 1×1=1 1×2=2 −2 × 3 = −6 34 This total of 34 may then be compared with totals calculated for alternative courses of action.

Given your community, would you require an EIS, or would an EA suffice? Outline the topics that would be included in an EIS, or EA. In your community, would you file a FONSI? Note that this problem is best worked as a team or class effort, and the results will differ from community to community. This Page Intentionally Left Blank Chapter 3 Risk Analysis One of the tasks of the environmental engineer is to understand and reduce the risks from hazards from environmental pollution to the environment and to public health in both long and short term.

The engineer must remember that risk assessment, when used in environmental impact assessment, is independent of risk as perceived by, or presented to, the public. He or she should assay risk as quantitatively as possible. The details of performing a risk analysis are presented in Chap. 3. SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT Historically, the President’s Council on Environmental Quality has been responsible for overseeing the preparation of environmental assessments, and CEQ regulations have listed what should be included in all environmental assessments developed by federal agencies.
