Permitting and environmental compliance are two of PACE’s specialties. Our planning department is completely familiar with all facets of current federal, state, and local permitting requirements. As ongoing engineers and planners for a variety of municipalities and special purpose districts, we routinely design and implement projects to comply with the myriad environmental regulations facing utility service providers today. This includes coordinating environmental assessments, biological assessments, ESA consultations, and other specialty requirements associated with NEPA and SEPA compliance.
Our work with roads, facilities, water, wastewater, stormwater, and broadband utilities has given us a comprehensive understanding of the regulations associated with marine and freshwater environments, wetlands, and other critical areas. As regulatory requirements expand and become more complex, NPDES requirements and biological evaluations have become an increasingly important aspect of our ongoing work with utility service providers.
