Environmental Planning

Reducing risk, ensuring success.

From site development plans seeking municipal California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) approval to federally funded National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) environmental impact statements (EISs), NV5 helps reduce risk to achieve project success. NV5 supports applications for Title V Permits, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater and industrial wastewater discharge permits, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) certificates, Federal Highway Administration, Bureau of Indian Affairs and Bureau of Land Management realty actions, federal and state Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 401 and 404 permits, erosion and sediment control plan approvals, coastal area development permits, stream encroachment permits and right-of-way plans and grants. We bring decades of experience in conducting environmental impact analyses and preparing NEPA EISs, environmental assessments (EAs) and categorical exclusions (CEs).
