SOLVING Problems and BUILDING Value
Since the early 1990s, WWC has prepared numerous NEPA compliance documents, mostly as a third-party contractor to BLM preparing Environmental Impact Statements and Environmental Assessments for mineral lease applications, lease modifications, water management plans and mineral-surface exchanges. Often EPA and OSM as well as various state regulatory agencies have cooperated in the preparation of these NEPA documents. This has provided WWC with a thorough knowledge of the NEPA process, including a clear statement of purpose and need, full and logical consideration of alternatives, and objective impact analysis. We have also held term contracts with state transportation departments for the preparation of Categorical Exclusions and Environmental Assessments for various types of projects, including new construction, reconstruction, enhancements and simple surfacing and overlay projects. We have prepared more than 30 major EISs and EAs and not one of our NEPA reports has been successfully challenged by internal agency review boards or interest groups. Our fees for these projects over the past decade have totaled more than $3 million, and we currently have a core staff of professionals who do little else besides writing NEPA compliance documents. Many of the EISs we have prepared as a third-party contractor are currently available for public viewing on various BLM web sites.
