Organization

North Slope Borough, Habitat Health Impact Consulting

This HIA is integrated into the Bureau of Land Management’s new integrated activity plan/environmental impact statement (IAP/EIS) that will guide the agency’s management of the region, including leasing and development of oil and gas resources. The HIA addresses a range of health considerations, including, for example, how future oil and gas exploration and development activities could affect diet and nutrition, environmental exposures (such as air and water pollution), noise exposure, infectious disease transmission, culture change, and the local economy.  The EIS includes a number of new mitigation measures to address the health effects identified. The Integrative Activity Plan is prepared in according with several laws, including the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act, and the National Historic Preservation Act.
