Description: Drilling rigs, confined dredged material disposal sites power and sewage treatment facilities, and other built objects on or near shorelines have often created appreciable impacts on the aesthetic perceptions of residents and recreational users. Techniques for assessing such impacts that are reviewed in this paper include viewscape analysis for large-scale shore facilities, as employed in the Long Island Sound Regional Study and the visual impact analysis used in the Hart-Miller Islands Environmental Assessment for review of alternative spoil island location. Guidelines and design solutions reviewed include those developed for offshore rigs at Long Beach, California; for a free horizon arc offshore of Santa Rosa Island, Florida; and for landscape concepts for dredged material sites prepared for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
