Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Technical Reports

Prior to preparing the EIS document, two other documents were prepared as part of the EIS process. Those include a Coordination Plan (841 kb PDF) and an Impact Analysis Methodology (577 kb PDF). The Coordination Plan identifies how project information will be communicated and how input from agencies and the public will be solicited and considered during the EIS process. The Impact Analysis Methodology explains how the project's potential impacts will be evaluated.

Final EIS

The Final EIS was approved on September 11, 2014. Similar to the Draft EIS, the purpose of the Final EIS is to document the purpose and need of the project, the alternatives considered, and the impacts of those alternatives still under consideration at that time. The Final EIS also documents the reasons the preferred alternative was selected (the Pebble Creek West Alternative) and the input received at the public hearing in November 2012. Comments on the Final EIS will be accepted if they are e-mailed or postmarked by October 20, 2014. They should be e-mailed to westbypass@waukeshacounty.gov or mailed to:

Gary Evans, PE
Waukesha County Department of Public Works
515 Moreland Boulevard
Waukesha, WI 53188
