Permitting and Regulatory Support

There have been a multitude of amendments to the Clean Air Act since it was ratified by the United States Congress in 1963. The history of these amendments has shown the widespread support of cleaner air for Americans, as expanded powers were given to it by presidents Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, and George H. W. Bush. However, keeping track of the copious amounts of federal and state regulations and permitting requirements can be an overwhelming task.

Air Quality Permitting: Our associates possess considerable experience preparing Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) construction permit applications, Title V initial and renewal operating applications, minor source review applications, and permit by rule (PBR) applications in various states throughout the U.S. These permitting actions have included air dispersion modeling analyses and control technology reviews.
