Bridgewater Group prides itself in its ability to understand its client's business and identify opportunities to lower the cost of environmental management. In this context, we have assisted clients in the development of multi-year programs to re-engineer their environmental function and business processes. We have conducted studies to demonstrate the potential cost and revenue ramifications of improved environmental decision-making processes. Specific services include the following:

  • Regulatory compliance audits, assessments, and consulting 
  • Air quality impact evaluations and compliance strategy development 
  • Federal, state, or local facility permitting for industrial or energy facilities
  • Environmental management system development and implementation
  • Intranet systems for information management

One of Bridgewater Group's specialties is the economic evaluation of environmental liabilities in support of mergers & acquisitions, insurance cost recovery actions, and reserve analysis. We have a reputation for providing our clients with highly defensible and reliable estimates including relatively complex environmental liabilities such as sediment cleanup in harbors and waterways, cleanup of sites with potential endocrine disruptors, natural resource damages, and regional landfills.

Specific services include the following:

  • Insurance cost recovery 
  • Third-party review of environmental liabilities 
  • Economic evaluation of liabilities 
  • Portfolio management strategies 

We create value by developing and implementing integrated technical, regulatory, project delivery, insurance, financial, and administrative solutions that significantly reduce the cost of site investigation and cleanup. We have a proven track record of creating total cost savings ranging from 20 to 80 percent on individual sites and portfolios of sites.

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:

  • Remedial investigations, risk evaluations, feasibility studies, and remedial designs for contaminated soils, groundwater, sediments, surface water, and wetlands 
  • Agency negotiations support 
  • Brownfield redevelopment 
  • Cost allocation
  • NRDA strategy development and support
