Permit and Compliance Strategy
Development and Support


Development of a permitting and compliance strategy is affected by many factors, such as the possibility that both state and federal permits may be required, the feasibility of using compensating emission reductions as offsets for planned emission increases, the area attainment status with respect to National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), and the types of emission controls to be proposed and their suitability as BACT or Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) (as required by permitting regulations). Waid Environmental's engineers evaluate these factors early in the permitting process to optimize scheduling and balance both short-term and long-term permitting needs.
