ANS-2.25, Surveys of Terrestrial Ecology Needed to License Thermal Power Plants

Scope: This standard discusses the need developers of thermal power plants and their associated facilities have for information on the terrestrial environment. Utilities and regulatory agencies must collect information to predict and assess real and potential environmental impacts, and to site and design generating plants that avoid or reduce adverse effects. Users of this standard will be guided through each stage of a survey with its corresponding requirements, the relationship of the terrestrial ecologist and other specialists in a major project, sources of information, and the governing laws and regulations.
