Environmental stewardship practice at state Departments of Transportation (DOTs) has grown exponentially in recent years. NCHRP 25-25(04) presents a compendium of environmental stewardship practices in construction and maintenance, developed from the literature, state transportation agency manuals and procedures, and the contributions of state DOTs and practitioners. The best practices herein serve as a guide to the development of Environmental Management Systems and environmental strategic plans both on the organizational level and in specific functional areas. Practices can also serve as foundational elements for individual environmental guidance resources that DOTs may develop.
