Environmental Planning Division
HMB’s planners, biologists, environmentalists, and geologists all work together to provide thorough research and to propose sound solutions for all types of environmentally sensitive projects. Projects such as Louisville-Southern Indiana Bridges Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) have given HMB the background to accomplish complex and important projects. From ecological surveys for industrial developments to coordinating sensitive public meetings for large transportation projects, HMB can meet any environmental planning challenge.
On location, HMB’s Environmental Team uses a wide array of equipment and procedures to provide services including noise monitoring, hazmat assessments, water and soil sampling, relocation assessments, and ecological surveys including wetlands delineation. These investigations continue at HMB’s offices and laboratory with water and soil analyses, species identification, and mathematical modeling of noise impacts and air emissions. Our team documents these field and laboratory findings, researches other available sources for data, analyzes the findings, and produces professional written studies detailing conditions, impacts, and proposed mitigation measures in the project areas. In addition, HMB’s documents are prepared in compliance with all appropriate federal and national standards. In particular, HMB specializes in NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) compliance and preparation, biological assessment preparation, and Clean Water Act permitting compliance.
