Town Lake: An Environmental Impact Assessment

by Jill A. Jordan, Dallas Public Works Dep, Dallas, TX, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Environmental Engineering


The City of Dallas, Texas, had little experience with environmental impact assessments of major capital improvements projects. Yet when deciding whether to build a 110,000,000 urban lake, City management believed that an environmental assessment was required to make an informed decision. The author describes the City's experience of recognizing the need for an assessment and then initiating and conducting the assessment, which might prove helpful to others faced with similar decisions on large-scale projects.
