Will our company's new project trigger the need to obtain any environmental permits?

A new commercial/industrial construction project will almost always require some type of environmental permitting. Even fairly insignificant modifications to existing business operations can trigger permit obligations for air quality, wastewater, or waste management. Additionally, new construction typically triggers permitting obligations for erosion and sedimentation control and stormwater management. It's always advisable to discuss potential permitting ramifications for a project as early as possible in the planning stages because some permits can take in excess of a year to obtain.
