Abstract: A model describes how determinations can be made on the effects of an engineered work or product in the environment. The engineered work can be a new waterway, a wastewater diffuser system, a water resource that will affect flow into an estuary, etc. The engineered product could be a new pollutant such as brine discharge, a new pesticide, or toxic chemical which will be released in the environment. This model, which was greatly influenced by the Department of Energy-sponsored Strategic Petroleum Reserve Program, is taught to all Civil Engineering students at Texas A&M University.
