The assessment of subsurface conditions in soil and groundwater has an extremely high value in managing environmental risk. Accurate investigation is the cornerstone of everything we do in the due diligence, risk assessment, liability reduction and remediation areas of our business.
In a world of ever changing rules and regulations, it is increasingly difficult to stay in compliance with environmental regulations. Sierra Piedmont understands that corporate environmental managers and facility managers wear many hats, making it harder than ever to stay on top of compliance-related issues.
While the definition of due diligence refers to the research and analyses involved in a transaction, it really refers to “doing the right things” to adequately study a particular situation, project or transaction. In the environmental arena, Sierra takes all necessary steps to establish a baseline of information for all parties involved.
Many times regulation does not specifically require an issue be considered or it may be out of scope for a routine Phase I ESA. Or, in other cases addressing a particular issue does not neatly fit under a broad based program such as the Clean Water or Air Acts.
Sierra Piedmont offers training on-site or over the phone for any staff that need annual training or guidance on environmentally-related topics. From SPCC to universal waste and everything in between, we can give you the valuable information that you need.
