This report presents materials intended for use by reviewers of environmental impact statements on major water resources development reservoir projects. The report is prepared as a series of six related but individually referenced discussions of the following major topics: Reservoir project planning, construction, and operation activities; water quality impacts of reservoir construction; ecological impacts of reservoir construction; economic, social, and aesthetic impacts of reservoir construction; review criteria for assessing general statement completeness and accuracy; and a review of impact assessment methodologies. The materials presented attempt to call to the reviewer's attention important issues or potential impacts that an adequate impact statement should address. In addition, the water quality and ecological impacts sections discuss the site-specific conditions under which a given potential impact may or may not occur. The section on water quality impacts also presents a detailed comparison of mathematical models for predicting impacts on water temperature, dissolved oxygen levels, and some chemical constituents of surface waters. The sections dealing with water quality, ecological, and economic-social-aesthetic impacts include extensive citations to relevant literature.
