permitting

We offer a variety of permitting services to a wide range of clients, including sand and gravel quarries, asphalt plants, furniture manufacturers and coating companies. Generally, permitting falls into the falling categories:

Air
We successfully obtain air construction and operating permits for a variety of sites. We can help you through the permitting process and can also complete Annual Emission Reports required by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA).

Land
We have experience with both the Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) site and the Site Remediation Program (SRP) in the IEPA’s Bureau of Land. We have closed sites under RCRA requirements. Each year, we complete many SARA Tier II (Community Right to Know) reports.

Water
We offer National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) storm water permitting, as well as mining permits. We prepare Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) and Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans.
