Permitting / Compliance Assistance

Jones & Henry has assisted numerous municipalities in securing permits that are:

  • fair
  • implementable
  • minimum compliance costs

We provide this service to practically all of our clients. We believe that a permit should protect water (or air) quality without imposing an unreasonable burden on the community or industry. Arriving at such a permit requires understanding local natural conditions, system capability, system requirements, and financial ability to pay to achieve quality goals.

While effluent quality needs may be well established, there is normally the potential for adjusting implementation schedules and the scope of sampling and testing. Jones & Henry has assisted many utilities in accomplishing these goals.

From time to time facilities fail to comply with permit conditions. At that time experts from Jones & Henry assist the plant to bring it into compliance. Assistance can take many shapes including:

  • discussions with plant staff on procedures
  • review sampling procedures, laboratory practices, operating schedules, etc.

We tailor our approach to the particular problem.

Our staff includes engineers and operators to assist facilities to come into compliance. If necessary we can assign personnel to a site for extended periods of time. We have operated facilities and/or trained operators many times.
