We take our commitment to meet or exceed the requirements of all federal, state, and local agencies, very seriously. We strive to be the leaders in our industry by working directly with government agencies, industry groups, and engineering firms.  As a member of the community, we believe our reputation is very important. We want the trust of our neighbors as much as of the government agencies who regulate our operations.

To support our efforts in this area, we have implemented a strong environmental management system that includes automated permit compliance tracking, systems development, compliance audits, and training.  In addition, we actively work with federal and local agencies on new regulations, technology options, and benchmarking.
