Outstanding
Environmental
Resource
Document
by the
Association of Environmental Professionals,
California Chapter

The award citation poses the question,"...what do you do when you are alone in your office and you need some professional CEQA guidance...?"

The award citation continues:

"Since the first edition was published almost 20 years ago, the CEQA Deskbook has helped thousands of environmental professionals gain a better understanding of environmental impact assessment practices in California."

"This third edition of the CEQA Deskbook contains new, improved, and updated materials written to help the reader understand the environmental review process. New sections address climate change and greenhouse gas impacts, CEQA streamlining for infill development, CEQA's effectiveness, and other new topics. Other contemporary topics include the use of thresholds of significance, determining the "baseline" for analysis, the many opportunities for tiering in environmental analyses, requirements for water supply analysis, and developing defensible mitigation measures."

"The authors - Ron Bass, Ken Bogdan, and Antero Rivasplata - are all experienced CEQA practitioners who have devoted much of their careers to environmental education and sharing their expertise with their colleagues."

The citation concludes:

"A must have reference book for anybody in our profession!"
