ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE AND INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
Managing environmental compliance obligations in
an ever-changing business and regulatory climate is one of the top
challenges for today’s environmental managers. Most organizations
we work with are often faced staff reductions while their compliance
burdens continue to increase.
We work to tailor compliance programs to the needs and goals
of the organization; from “baseline” compliance evaluations to
ascertain systemic and programmatic deficiencies, single and
multi-facility compliance audits, compliance program development,
permit preparation and permitting strategy development, to day-to-day
onsite compliance assistance.
We carefully track anticipated and proposed rulemaking so that
we help you understand compliance today as well as what it will be in
the near future so that valuable resources will be extended to meet
future compliance needs.

We also lower the cost of site cleanup through our hands-on approach to project management and our ability to access the resources required to complete larger projects on an as needed basis. As a firm of six senior experts, clients can be assured that the person who crafted the project strategy will direct its implementation. Clients can also be assured that during implementation, they will pay for resources only when they are needed. These two aspects of our business model have translated into 20 to 30 percent cost savings on site investigation and cleanup projects.
Our experience encompasses all phases of the site cleanup process, including project scoping, site investigation, risk evaluations, feasibility studies, and remedial action design and implementation. We have extensive experience in Federal Superfund and RCRA corrective action site cleanups, as well as experience with a number of state-level programs. Finally, Bridgewater Group has a broad base of experience in both upland and sediment cleanups involving PCBs, PAHs, VOCs, pesticides, and metals. Specific services include the following:
