One method used to identify, analyze and minimize environmental degradation from proposer development is the employment of an environmental impact assessment. An environmental impact assessment can supply information which can be used to help locate and determine the type of development on a particular site.

The following is an environmental impact assessment for the Coventry/West Greenwich Zone. It is great expectations that this report will serve the residents of the state and users of the site by supplying the information necessary to preserve the integrity of the natural environment while allowing maximum development.
