With NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) Phase I & II storm water regulations increasingly affecting land development and watershed management in urban areas, doing the right thing at the right time can mean the difference between compliance and noncompliance that can potentially whipsaw program results and expenses. Too often, developers and municipalities in coping with tightening budgets are faced with managing a diverse array of specialty contractors to try and manage environmental programs.
Land use changes, residential/commercial development and natural water feature remediation projects (lakes and streams), involve making modifications to dynamic, natural ecosystems. Changes or corrections in one area of the system often results in creation of another problem in a different area. With the right personnel, tools and knowledge Emerald is experienced in working closely with engineering firms, municipalities, general contractors, etc., to effectively meld water control activities with other projects, such as sewer and road construction or stream restoration to enhance or reduce costly site work practices.
Combined with its practical experience in staging and implementing field environmental site work, Emerald uses digital photography and cellular data links to provide reports backed by photos/video that allows site managers and engineers to participate in site work decisions, evaluation and job tracking on a real-time basis. Emerald also has the resources and equipment to respond within 24 hours to any environmental problem or emergency involving our client's site.
Emerald's field team has over 50 years of combined environmental "hands-on" experience that is used to develop a proactive, BMPs systems approach to our clients site work needs.
