Results

ATC’s environmental specialists guided the process and developed the application package that met the regulatory agency’s standards. We analyzed historical data of wastewater at the site, prepared a sampling plan, and analyzed data to assess potential issues regarding water quality criteria. ATC provided a thorough technical review of the draft Permit issued by the agency and provided comments on behalf of our client. Due our in-depth knowledge of the permit process, our team was able to negotiate and obtain favorable permit conditions for our client.
