Environmental planners help to ensure that urban and regional development and renovation plans are in compliance with environmental laws and regulations. They analyze plans for potential problems and also look for opportunities. For example, they make sure ecosystems and open spaces will be preserved, that water runoff is managed, and that endangered species are protected. They assess land use, wetlands and habitats, transportation, economic and housing characteristics, flood zones, coastal erosion zones, and air pollution and noise pollution.
