GEOLOGIC HAZARDS AND THEIR RELATION TO PLANNING, LOCATION, AND DESIGN OF TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES

The description, evaluation, and mitigation of geologic hazards on transportation facilities are an important part of the environmental review process. The geologic hazards that are frequently encountered are described, together with field methods for efficiently obtaining the information required for recognition and subsequent documentation of these hazards in a Geologic Hazard Report. The need for District planners to recognize possible geologic hazards on a proposed project at an early stage is emphasized. The principle purpose of a Geologic Hazard Report is to facilitate preparation of the environmental document required for project. Failure of environmental report writers to fully utilize this material results in negative comments by reviewers of the draft copy, thus resulting in delays in achieving an approval of a final draft of Environmental Impact Statements or Negative Declarations.
