Engineering Report/Environmental Information Document

Preparing the Engineering Report/Environmental Information Document

  • The Engineering Report/Environmental Information Document (ER/EID) is a planning document that should identify project needs, evaluate alternatives for addressing those needs, and assess environmental impacts.   

  • After receiving a Letter of Intent to Fund, begin preparing the ER/EID using the guidance and forms below.

  • Be sure to submit the ER/EID by the deadline included in your Letter of Intent to Fund.

  • A substantial change to the project scope after approval of the ER/EID may require an amendment to the ER/EID.

  • Be sure to include the Submittal Checklist with initial submittals of an ER/EID or ER/EID amendment. 

  • The division will review the ER/EID and provide comments and/or request for additional information or revision.

  • After the ER/EID review is complete, the division will issue an approval letter and environmental document for the project.    

ER/EID Guidance

  • The guidance below is specific to the CWSRF, DWSRF, WW-HUC, DW-HUC, and CDBG-I programs.  Before preparing ERs/EIDs, please bookmark this page and check it for any updates, which will be shown to the right of the file.  Each project type will have its associated appendix below it.
