This planning guide was developed in a collaborative effort between U.S. EPA and its partners. Its purpose is to help you to: Recognize the federal environmental requirements and factor in the associated expenses for the project; Designate the responsible party to fulfill these requirements; Complete the requirements by filing the necessary paperwork, performing the required activities, and obtaining the essential permits; and Identify additional sources of information to help implement these requirements throughout your project. The guide contains two parts. Part I presents background information on environmental requirements for the construction and development industries. It also contains a checklist to help assign environmental responsibilities. Part II contains seven self-audit checklists that help construction companies evaluate their compliance status in these seven areas once the project has commenced.
