Today’s U.S. federal agency budgets and timelines require environmental planning documentation that are legally defensible, technically sound, and cost effective.
Before a major U.S. federal action can be approved, the federal agency must first assess potential environmental impacts. This service area consists of preparing documentation in compliance with the U.S. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (e.g., Environmental Impact Statements, Environmental Assessments) and related environmental studies. The Scout Environmental leadership team are certified professionals who have experience streamlining NEPA processes and have successfully managed more than 90 environmental planning projects. Scout leaders are known and respected in the industry for proven performance.
Scout is experienced in overseeing environmental surveys and studies including natural and cultural resources, socioeconomics, noise, and air quality. Scout provides the public outreach that is needed to determine appropriate environmental mitigation or avoidance for U.S. federal agencies.
Scout Environmental project managers are experienced in preparing Environmental Assessments (EAs) to analyze the potential environmental impacts of installing solar photovoltaic panels at several Navy installations throughout the Southwestern U.S. Scout assesses key environmental issues such as impacts to operations and natural and cultural resources.
Scout Environmental project managers are experienced in preparing Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) and overseas Environmental Reviews for some of the largest and most complex projects in the Pacific and overseas for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Some of this work included analyzing the potential environmental impacts of basing and operating a new aircraft and constructing new training ranges.
