This document is one in a series being issued by the EPA to assist proponents, consultants and the public generally to gain additional information about the EPA’s thinking in relation to aspects of the EIA process and effective environmental management. The Guidance Statements assist proponents to achieve environmentally acceptable proposals and management plans. Consistent with the notion of continuous environmental improvement and adaptive environmental management, the EPA expects proponents to take all reasonable and practicable measures to protect the environment and to view the requirements of this Guidance as representing the minimum standards necessary for rehabilitation of ecosystems. This document is also designed to assist proponents to meet requirements of environmental auditing of completion criteria for such projects.
