Environmental Services

From routine permit applications to environmental assessments, our environmental scientists possess the range of experience necessary to ensure that your projects progress smoothly. It is our goal to proactively identify and resolve environmental issues before they evolve into obstacles that could negatively impact your project's ultimate success. As such, it is important to MJ’s environmental staff to partake in frequent training and industry groups/conferences, to stay abreast of the latest regulatory developments.

Our strong working relationships with state and federal agencies aids in our ability to develop environmental documentation in a manner that can be approved expeditiously. MJ’s professionals are well-versed in providing public outreach that educates, while garnering the public and regulatory agency acceptance required to obtain approval for a proposed project. We utilize state-of-the-art technology to develop presentation graphics and materials for public hearings. Our philosophy is to always provide quality analyses, anticipate potential problems, consider public concerns, and develop the most effective, environmentally-compliant solutions for our clients.
