Abstract : Scoping is a new requirement from the President's Council on Environmental Quality. Its express purpose is threefold: Agencies and individuals who have a direct interest in a project, including affected local residents and advisory groups must be given the opportunity to input points-of-view/questions for the EIS; Project management is given the opportunity to define and explain the project as well as answer citizen/agency questions; and By elimination, analysis areas not of concern are identified, and focus shifts to more intense study of identified key issues. As a result of agency, organization, and public input during the scoping process, ten key environmental issues have been identified for the MX environmental program, and will provide effective direction for environmental analyses and EIS preparation.
