Considering All Things: Summary of the Draft Environmental Impact Statements (May 1997) (approximately 60 pages) This is a reader's guide to the Draft Environmental Impact Statements. It provides a brief discussion about the purpose of the project, ecological integrity, alternative development, environmental consequences, and implementation.
Economic and Social Conditions of Communities (February 1998) The Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project completed and released a report on the economic and social conditions of several hundred communities in the Pacific Northwest. The report contains an analysis of the economic and social conditions of communities in a 144 million acre region addressed in the Draft Environmental Impact Statements. The analysis provides additional data on economic and social conditions and impacts based on the management alternatives presented in the Draft EISs and standardized industry category data, such as agriculture, wood products manufacturing, and mining.
"This report has been published in response to the need identified by the Eastside Coalition of Counties and in the 1998 Interior Appropriations Bill for a more complete characterization of communities and effects," said Martha Hahn, Chairperson of the Project's Executive Steering Committee. "In order to get a more complete picture of these communities, it was necessary to look at them at the community level in addition to the basin-wide level portrayed in the Project's Scientific Assessment and Draft EISs."
