Your Solution for Environmental Compliance
As all public agency project managers know, the regulatory climate in the country, and especially in California, is becoming increasingly complex and burdensome to project proponents and local agencies. Krieger & Stewart’s 40 years of experience will assist you to navigate the complex regulatory path, and to avoid costly errors.
Based on our many partnerships with public agencies, and our service as District Engineer for several Southern California water districts, we understand the responsibility of public agencies to control their costs as a matter of public trust. In this respect, we approach environmental analysis from the point of view of the public agency, carefully evaluating the necessity of each component.
Obtaining the necessary environmental permits and authorizations in a timely manner is a critical factor in the successful completion of an infrastructure project on-schedule and on-budget. For each project, we emphasize early and thorough communication with permitting agencies. We typically initiate communication with the appropriate regulatory agencies during the preliminary stages of document preparation. As soon as preliminary design and environmental documents are available, we complete and submit the necessary permit applications to ensure that the required permits are obtained prior to the anticipated construction start date. We typically prepare the various permit applications and have them signed by the appropriate client representative.
