Environmental consulting is a broad term. But let us break it done for you. A majority of developments require some form of environmental compliance with different regulatory agencies. Public or Private developers work to environmentally clear their projects with City and County Planning Departments who must comply with State and Federal agencies. It could be that a project is considered Categorically Exempt or Excluded. Even in these situations, Soar Environmental Consulting provides the scientific expertise to research, analyze, and create the necessary technical studies in a variety of disciplines that will ultimately be reviewed and aid in the determination for environmental law compliance for your project. For the State, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and for the Federal Government, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) are the legislation that drive the environmental requirements. Many agencies have their environmental reviewers that receive fieldwork from consultants and then make their determinations based on their expertise as it applies to environmental law.
