Permitting

GSI has navigated the complexities of domestic and international environmental legislation, regulations, and policy since our founding in 1986. We determine the applicability of environmental regulatory and permitting requirements to client operations, and develop strategies for managing the requirements to ensure compliance. From site selection to facility closure, GSI has experience managing permitting and compliance issues for all environmental media along with management of hazardous and nonhazardous waste, RCRA permitting, CERCLA Superfund site management, storm water management, naturally-occurring radioactive materials (NORM), underground storage tanks, community right-to-know, pollution prevention planning, and oil and gas permitting.

RCRA / Hazardous Waste Management

GSI’s seasoned staff efficiently guide our clients through the maze of hazardous waste requirements and regulations. We prepare permit renewals; conduct compliance audits; and assist with waste characterization, transportation and disposal; and assist with closure of individual units or entire facilities. We conduct RCRA facility investigations, evaluate risk, and develop cost-effective strategies for Corrective Measures.

CERCLA / Superfund Site Management

GSI helps clients navigate the complex issues associated with Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) sites. We conduct remedial investigations/feasibility studies (RI/FS), risk assessments, remedy selection, site close out, cost recovery, liability allocation, community involvement, and long-term site monitoring, working effectively with regulators throughout the process.
