Many environmental issues often impact projects. Wetlands, protected habitat, threatened and endangered species, water quality, historical and archaeological resources, and contamination all influence the process. WGI is experienced at identifying these impacts and with developing creative design options to avoid or minimize delays. Once issues are identified, WGI works with local, state, and federal authorities to ensure the project continues to advance through the permitting process.
Environmental regulatory processes continue to increase in their complexity. Clients require knowledgeable professionals who understand environmental regulations and policies, and their impact on permitting success. WGI's environmental scientists stay abreast of all regulatory changes and provide our clients with insight and creative solutions utilizing crucial regional knowledge developed through years of "on the ground" experience. Regulations are designed to protect local and national environmental treasures. WGI assists in this process by developing solutions that minimize or avoid impacts.
