Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Resources Infrastructure: Needs, Economics, and Financing


Those in the business community who may be affected by environmental factors include: buyers and sellers of businesses, existing facilities, and real property; their lenders, brokers, appraisers, insurers, and attorneys; and lessors and lessees. The nature of environmental-related effects depends upon the nature of the transaction. This paper focuses on those environmental factors relevant to the acquisition of a tract of property for subsequent development for residential, commercial, or industrial uses. It discusses environmental laws generally, then focuses on specific environmental programs, and finally touches on a methodology for evaluating these considerations.
