It is important that reasonableness be the basic criterion in determining the level of mitigative measures that can be applied to any WSSC project. Community and PRG members must be prepared to identify host community levels of demand that are consistent with actual or perceived reductions in the quality of life or impact on the environment that may result from a proposed project. Other governmental agencies must also recognize that they cannot expect to add onto WSSC projects additional non-water- and non-sewer-related projects without regard to the concerns raised in this policy as conditions for receiving required permits or other approvals. Since a variety of individual situations may occur, a definitive policy on acceptable levels of mitigation applicable to any and all projects is impossible to develop. The above sets basic guidelines that should permit the identification and inclusion of a reasonable level of community/park benefits to be included as part of Commission capital improvement projects.
