Environmental Compliance Management & Monitoring

EPG’s level of detail, coordination, and efficiency in providing adequate and pertinent information that is easily accessible reduces noncompliance occurrences and expedites variance procedures.

EPG uses the expertise of our diverse interdisciplinary group of specialists to provide comprehensive environmental compliance programs designed to maintain the balance between development goals and environmental concerns. These services span the seamless transfer of relevant permitting requirements into the vernacular of construction documents during preconstruction; to the implementation of comprehensive inspection and reporting programs during construction; to the planning, design, implementation, supervision, and monitoring of reclamation activities; to post-construction project closeout. We understand our clients’ concerns and work with them to guide each project through to its successful and timely completion in compliance with federal, state, local, and tribal regulations.
