Abstract: Whether recognized or not, it is a fact that the country is undergoing a revolution in the conduct of major public engineering works. That revolution results from the variety of institutional measures devised to gage the environmental factors which will increasingly determine: (1) whether or not new public works should be built at all; and (2) how and where major engineering works (or their alternatives) should be designed, constructed and operated in order to be sensitive to their environmental effects and to minimize such effects. In its overall intent, this broadening of the role of engineering responsibility is highly desirable for the future of a growing society. That is because there are real potentials for heavier, more complicated stresses on the environment and there is a great need to use our vital resources more wisely and efficiently.
