Industries and governments are working to abate pollution of land and water, and minimize the impacts of development to the biosphere. As a result, resource development must be not only internally efficient but also environmentally sound.
EarthFax has provided environmental planning and permitting services on numerous projects. Supported by our expertise and that of our subcontractors in the collection of baseline data and the prediction of project impacts, as well as our facility design experience, we have prepared numerous permit applications for mining operations, chemical manufacturing facilities, petroleum refineries, oil and gas pipeline operations, land development, waste-water and storm-water discharges, and underground injection of waste water. We have also prepared multiple pollution-prevention plans and major portions of several Environmental Assessments and Impact Statements.
On numerous occasions, EarthFax has been called upon to act as a liaison between the client and the appropriate regulatory agencies. In these capacities, we have been able to maintain professional working relationships with regulatory agencies while continuing to look after the needs of the client. We have also provided expert witness testimony on environmental matters before regulatory boards and in civil litigation.
Following are a few highlights that describe our experience with environmental planning and permitting:
