The WISER curriculum offers detailed and specific information on each topic, enabling users to evaluate accident potential of airports and risk to endangered species. Bodies of water such as rivers, ponds and wetlands need to be considered, as well as how to achieve environmental justice goals, and protect HUD-assisted projects from excessive noise.

These first five modules cover the following topic areas:

  • Airport Hazards
  • Endangered Species
  • Environmental Justice
  • Noise Abatement and Control
  • Water Elements
