Environmental Compliance Services
Maintaining regulatory compliance is an important part of operating a facility or owning property.  
Making sure that the facility or property adheres to environmental regulations helps an owner or
operator avoid costly corrective actions, prevent government-imposed penalties, and preserve
intrinsic property value. Environmental audits and site assessments are two methods of ensuring
that owners stay in compliance - from acquisition through operation to final disposition.

Environmental compliance audits are the most effective way to identify deficiencies and areas of
potential noncompliance.  A thorough audit evaluates permit and compliance status with respect
to federal, state, and local regulations. It typically covers areas such as waste generation and
disposal, storage and process tanks, air emissions, safety and health hazards, and hazardous
materials handling.  As a form of due diligence, site assessments are critical to assessing the
potential environmental problems associated with a site before any property transactions occur.
