Abstract: Siting, permitting, and mitigating impacts present many challenges during the development of major capital facilities. As a result of the need for public involvement, environmental review, wetland restrictions, regulatory agency permitting, as much effort is generally required for these activities as for project engineering and financing. By adopting a strategic approach to organizing the project development process, project proponents can expect to encounter fewer surprises and to receive timely project reviews and approvals. Recommendations for collaborative public involvement approaches and for dealing with wetland issues are described. Experiences during the development of four major water and wastewater projects are described.
