Electric power supply systems can have both direct and indirect impact on the environment. Their design for compatibility with the environment requires a logical and systematic approach to the problem by engineers, the application of a much broader field of specialized knowledge than is generally included in the traditional engineering professions, a coordinated cooperative dialogue between the project managers and representatives of the public, and the mature judgment of experienced persons. Alternate land uses must be given emphasis in siting, and locations remote from river valleys, public water bodies, urban areas, and airports should be considered. Special attention should be given to plant orientation, architecture, waste disposal, sound levels, and the overall impact on the region and its facilities.
