Strategies for Integrating Water Resource Issue Management with the Project Implementation Process 59 3.5.2 Water Resource Issue Management in Project Execution Phase The Project Execution Phase for development projects corresponds to the time that the water resource issue management associated with construction is completed and the operational man- agement of water resource issues commences. The following water resourcerelated activities typically occur during the Project Execution Phase: Completing the NEPA process; Submitting permit applications and approval documentation for individual water resource issues; Coordinating with regulators on status and timing of actions; Receiving permits and approvals; Modifying development project design to accommodate water resource compliance requirements; Evaluating whether project design modification requires NEPA reassessment, consideration of alternatives, or additional mitigation requirements; Designing, bidding, permitting, constructing, commissioning and starting up the control and mitigation measures needed to accommodate water resource compliance requirements; Initiating monitoring of mitigation measures; and Initiating operation of water resource issue control systems. Table 6 summarizes planning items and planning actions for the Project Execution Phase that are frequently associated with each of the four recurring steps in assessing water resource issues in development projects.
