GEC has completed thousands of environmental site assessments. Our cost-effective investigative techniques provide the requisite levels of site information. In addition to All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI), ASTM, or client-specific standards, we follow assessment procedures recommended or mandated by various state and federal agencies.
Waste Site Program
GEC has extensive experience conducting waste site investigations, remediation, risk assessment and regulatory closure activities. GEC also provides peer review and litigation support.
Environmental Health & Safety
GECs approach to regulatory services focuses on providing our clients the steps and tools for achieving regulatory compliance. GEC keeps the client needs in mind while developing innovative solutions and customized compliance programs.
GEC has comprehensive experience in a wide array of environmental services and engineering particularly in the areas of water and wastewater system design, construction support, and operations and maintenance.
GEC’s client, a scrap metal recycler, faced a citizen suit under the Clean Water Act for alleged stormwater non-compliance. GEC evaluated the operation, determined the applicability of the regulations, responded to the notification, filed for permit coverage, and developed a written stormwater pollution prevention plan (SW3P), with including best management practices, facility inspections, employee training and benchmark sampling to achieve compliance. Then, GEC designed engineering controls to collect and treat stormwater that enabled us to notify the EPA, on behalf of our client, informing them that our client was no longer subject to this regulation, saving thousands in ongoing compliance costs.
GEC consulted with both our client’s business and environmental attorneys to develop a mutually agreeable Consent Agreement and a plan for sustainable compliance, thus helping our client get into compliance, develop cost-effective engineering solutions, and avoid protracted litigation.
