Environmental Resource Management

The Phoenix Area Office's Environmental Resource Management Division is charged with protecting Arizona's natural and cultural resources within its area of operations. This means ensuring that federally funded construction projects designed to develop water resources do not harm the local environment or that unavoidable environmental impacts are mitigated. This is accomplished through adherence to federal law designed to protect the environment and cultural resources. The Phoenix Area Office also takes a proactive approach to protecting natural and cultural resources within its area of operations.
