Environmental Compliance and Permitting Services

Nobis performs health and safety and environmental compliance audits of industrial and commercial facilities to meet local, state and Federal regulations. Nobis is experienced in conducting and preparing Environmental Impact Statements (EIS), Environmental Assessments (EA), Environmental Baseline Surveys (EBS), and other environmental studies supporting Federal and state programs.

National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System -Phase II Storm Water Pollution Prevention Assistance

Nobis has prepared Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) for several state, municipal and private-sector maintenance and industrial facilities to meet the requirements of EPA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II program, as promulgated by EPA’s October 2000 NPDES Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for industrial activities. Nobis performs detailed site inspections of each facility’s operations and existing storm water systems, and develops Best Management Practices (BMPs) to support Notices of Intent (NOIs) or similar. Nobis has conducted training of client staff. This training included the preparation of site inspection and SWPPP checklists and training materials; coordinated and performed the training of personnel to perform the appropriate inspections and monitoring, and prepare the SWPPPs for the remaining vehicle maintenance facilities.  

Corridor Surveys

Nobis has conducted numerous corridor surveys to assess environmental conditions within a large geographic area. For a municipal client, Nobis performed an environmental assessment of potential redevelopment alternatives within a 510-acre downtown corridor that included 106 commercial and industrial properties with various soil and groundwater contaminants from existing and former site activities. The client has successfully implemented redevelopment opportunities within this corridor based on information obtained as part of a Brownfields project sponsored by the U.S. EPA.
