Draft Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
South Campus Utility Improvements
University of Wisconsin - Madison
DFD Project # 15K1F

The University of Wisconsin – Madison (UW-Madison) Facilities Planning and Management has retained Ayres Associates on behalf of the University of Wisconsin System Administration (UWSA) to prepare an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the proposed improvement of south campus utilities at UW-Madison along West Dayton Street from North Charter Street to North Park Street in Madison, Wisconsin. The EIA will be prepared in accordance with the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act (WEPA), Wisconsin Statutes 1.11, and UWSA guidelines (Board of Regents' Resolution 2508, November 6, 1981). An initial requirement of the EIA is the scoping process. The intent of the scoping process is to identify at an early stage potential beneficial or adverse impacts of the project on the physical, biological, social, and economic environments.
