BART IMPACT PROGRAM. IMPACTS OF BART ON THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT; INTERIM SERVICE FINDINGS

The report documents the study done on the impacts of BART on the natural environment. The general subject area is divided into three categories which define its limits and organize its many aspects. The categories are: (a) Biota (Wildlife and Vegetation) (b) Soils and Geology, and (c) Drainage and Water Systems. Since almost the entire area traversed by BART is urbanized and fully developed, this natural environment was not a major topic of study. However, a comprehensive review of BART's possible impacts was performed because impacts on the natural environment are often not apparent even when they are quite significant from an ecological point of view.
