ECI has developed a strong in-house Environmental Services group with a vast degree of combined experience in the completion of State Environmental Reports, NEPA environmental baseline permitting and siting studies for electric utility/energy development projects covering over 25 states. As a consequence, ECI has the notable distinction of performing environmental permitting project management for various projects involving underground transmission, overhead transmission and other lineal and site power projects.
Success in the environmental siting for electric utility projects is directly related to the skill and experience of the Environmental Project Manager combined with an innate understanding of electrical facility design; certainly, a review of the ECI’s Environmental Team qualifications leaves no doubt that we possess the most highly qualified members in the specialized field of power.

Line Routing, Siting, and Feasibility Studies
The following are examples of environmental line routing, siting and overall environmental feasibility study work completed by the ECI Environmental Team.
The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) provides for the balanced development of federally involved actions and the protection of the environment. The following are recent examples of recent projects in which a NEPA document was prepared.
State Environmental Studies
Many individual states have their own adopted environmental policies and regulations for actions undertaken by state agencies. Some of these actions may additionally qualify under NEPA. The following are examples of environmental permitting conducted under state environmental policies.
