Overview

One-stop, step-by-step guidance in the "how" of EIS project and strategic planning

This outstanding guide focuses on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) not merely as a document to be prepared, but as a process and framework for the planning of programs and projects. It presents state-of-the-art strategies, tools, techniques, and methodologies for managing EIS projects of any size and emphasizes practical approaches to problems that have traditionally hindered National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance and practice.

This single, comprehensive volume synthesizes and describes all relevant guidance and requirements that the EIS document must satisfy and illustrates relevant requirements with lessons from case law. Employing an incremental, building-block approach to describe the entire EIS planning process in complete detail, this indispensable handbook guides readers through each step of the process and provides:
* Step-by-step guidance on using the Total Federal Planning (TFP) strategy to reduce time and effort and streamline the entire EIS process
* A complete EIS checklist to ensure that every item is accounted for when preparing the statement
* Tools from value engineering theory, TQM, and systems planning for rendering the early decision-making process more efficient and effective

Professionals in government, consulting, and the private sector who seek to master NEPA, beginners and experts alike, will find Environmental Impact Statements to be the most economical, helpful, and complete resource available anywhere.
