Unique Environmental Permitting Experience: Louisiana
Karen Olson, Client Services & Project Manager, Power Engineers
In addition to traditional Air, USACE, OCM, LPDES permit application requirements, there are state, local and community requirements and needs that are expected to be addressed, especially for a grassroots plant. The state, local and community requirements and needs are beyond the technical and regulatory issues that are typically addressed in environmental permit applications. The planning, timeline, communication, coordination and implementation to address all these requirements are essential for the successful completion of a project. This discussion will provide an overview of the most interesting and unique experiences for an environmental permitting project and successful approaches to plan and address these unique project needs.
