The civil engineer is traditionally designated the jobsite environmental engineer during construction, and is responsible for managing environmental protection and monitoring. Jobsite wastewater treatment, oil and chemical spill control, soil destabilization and erosion projects must be managed effectively. The consultant should also satisfy construction management, the client, regulatory agencies and community concerns. Case studies emphasize the responsibilities usually imposed upon the civil engineer designated as the jobsite environmental engineer and the importance of environmental protection to project success.
