Permitting services are an essential part of environmental engineering design and are often the “project driver,” setting the stage for project delivery.

GEA is knowledgeable in the regulatory requirements which establish the design criteria which must be achieved by the facility.

Permitting encompasses permit services for industries, institutions or municipalities & government and includes:

  • Water
  • Stormwater
  • Wastewater
  • Non-Contact Cooling Water Discharge
  • Air
  • Solid Waste
  • Noise
  • Petroleum Bulk Storage
  • Soil and Land Standards
  • Construction Permits
  • Soil Erosion & Sediment Control

Once the criteria here have been established working with the regulatory agency, GEA employs the best available technology to meet or exceed discharge or emission standards.

GEA’s permitting services include:

  • Filing permit applications
  • Conducting sampling & testing
  • Providing certified laboratory analysis
  • Filing quarterly and annual reports
  • Discussing permit conditions with regulators
  • Providing data analyses
  • Providing reports
  • Securing the permit

Discharge permits to waters of the USA are typically SPDES administered by the USEPA or regulated by the individual states. Each state has adopted its own permitting requirements and application procedures. GEA has been conducting permitting for over 35 years and has successfully secured permits for construction and operational compliance.
