EPA’s mission is to protect human health and the environment. EPA, state, local, and tribal agencies work in concert to ensure compliance with laws passed by Congress, state legislatures and tribal governments. Four types of environmental regulations are covered and include: controlling the emission discharge of pollution; regulating certain industrial waste and products; public information requirements; and cleanup of contaminated sites.

RMC provides compliance assistance by helping a variety of affected entities address their specific issues. Should there be an opportunity to take advantage of compliance incentives, RMC can assist with those by assisting with self-reporting or embarking on a leveraged method of cleaning up sources of contamination. RMC has worked with local municipalities (e.g. City of Wheat Ridge, and Denver) to support them in managing regulatory issues that come into play via redevelopment of sites negatively impacted by industrial use over time. EPA grants and assistance provide incentives to do just that and RMC is well experienced in supporting efforts of this type. Federal agencies, themselves subject to compliance, also reach out to RMC to help them quantify and quickly resolve their regulatory concerns.

Elements of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Clean Air Act (CAA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and many others are well understood by our scientists and engineers. Some relevant project examples are noted here.
