Agency Negotiations and Liaison

Liaison and negotiation with regulatory agencies are often necessary during a project, requiring frequent interaction with regulatory personnel. Major permitting issues are identified and discussed early in the preparation process to ensure that they are resolved promptly. Issues that arise during the agency's permit application review are expeditiously settled due to our continual contact with the agency staff. In the latter stages of the permitting process, we negotiate with agency staff to obtain permit provisions which are as reasonable as possible.
