Monitoring

EPC provides support for industry from permitting
to restoration and everything in between.

EnviroPlus Consulting, LLC has extensive experience in a wide variety of industries including power transmission, oil and gas exploration and pipelines, solar and wind projects, telecommunications, water projects, and commercial development. We work as part of a solutions oriented team to find a path that will get the job done. At the same time, EPC maintains outstanding relations with regulatory agencies whose confidence and trust is vital to the successful completion of a project. One way EPC achieves these objectives is by using only experienced professionals with a substantial background in their technical areas of expertise as well as specific experience in the particular industry of your project. You won’t find any recent college graduates in the field at EPC. EPC can save your project money in the long run with our experience.

 

Surveys

EPC has expertise with over 60 sensitive
flora and fauna species.

EPC began in 1987 when we won a contract from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for mark-recapture population studies of desert tortoise. Through strategic collaborations with experts in a variety of fields, we have expanded from those humble beginnings to include an array of sensitive mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, invertebrates in addition to paleontology and archaeology. Many listed species have specific survey protocols that can only be conducted by permitted biologists. EPC can conduct surveys for most of these species.
