We already have a system in place for the construction of new water reservoirs in the United States. The system works and the any new environmental review is code for eroding the current system of environmental review through the National Environmental Policy Act. NEPA establishes the bare minimum to look at the impact of massive infrastructure projects like reservoirs. We need to strengthen legislation like NEPA, not erode it. Again, we should ask who are the beneficiaries of changing or abolishing review law, is it the local or regional populace in the vicinity of the federally funded project or is it special interests, the construction companies and energy companies that will benefit from less oversight of construction and environmental impacts. Less oversight will hurt the country and the American public.
