Permitting & Compliance

Providence has been involved with thousands of state and federal environmental permits in public and private sectors throughout the United States. Our diverse team includes permitting and technical specialists in air quality, surface water quality, natural resources, groundwater, solid and hazardous waste, site evaluation, and remediation. Providence’s environmental engineers, scientists, and technicians maintain a comprehensive understanding of federal, state, and local regulatory requirements to ensure our clients an unsurpassed knowledge base.

Every Providence engagement begins with a full understanding of our client’s operations, compliance status, and project goals to produce the most effective work product. Our range of environmental services includes negotiating complex permitting conditions and fulfilling reporting, monitoring, testing, modeling, risk management, and site evaluation requirements.  We regularly provide ongoing monitoring services to ensure compliance with permitting and regulatory requirements long after a project ends.

Natural Resources & Wetlands

Providence biologists, ecologists, and regulatory specialists have significant experience in all facets of natural resource compliance. Maintenance of a positive relationship with state and federal resource and regulatory agency personnel is paramount in the regulatory compliance arena. Over the years, Providence has established an excellent reputation with agency personnel in the relevant state and federal regulatory agencies throughout the southeastern United States.

Our specialized expertise ranges from endangered species to adaptive management, and our team of biologists and environmental scientists incorporates the principles and theories of ecology and biology to address our clients’ natural resource management concerns. Most important, we provide timely, accurate and scientifically sound assessments, compliance documents, biological assessments, and reports in all aspects of ecological and biological sciences.

NEPA

Providence has been a leading provider of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance services for over a decade. Our team has overseen the successful completion of numerous NEPA documents, from simple categorical exclusions (CE) to complex environmental impact statements (EIS) involving sensitive, controversial projects. In providing both the talent and expertise for NEPA projects, we bridge the gap between planners and engineers while satisfying the regulatory requirements.

Our technical knowledge of current NEPA-related policies and guidelines is extensive — critical to ensuring that your documents and technical analyses are compliant and defensible. Our team is exceptionally experienced in providing NEPA analyses and documentation to federal, state, and local government clients that utilize federal funds to construct projects or require federal permits for projects. We regularly evaluate the environmental and economic impacts of proposed projects, including in-depth ecological analysis of impacted habitats.
