Water Permitting and MonitoringBison Engineering’s groundwater environmental services range from simple analytical solutions of groundwater problems to the application of numerical models. Our analysis methods are applied to many problems, including local environmental impact studies, risk analysis to the environment or public health, remedial investigations and feasibility studies at abandoned mine sites.
Bison Engineering prepares National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit applications, stormwater discharge permit applications, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWP3) and Treatment System Operating Plans (TSOPs) for our clients. SWP3s are often required by regulatory agencies when NPDES or Stormwater Discharge Permits are issued. Any materials, activities or sources at a facility that, when in contact with stormwater, may cause pollution or become a pollutant must be reviewed for the application of best management practices (BMPs). TSOPs are documents that show how to properly operate and maintain a facility’s wastewater treatment system.
Bison designs, installs and operates groundwater and surface water monitoring networks at numerous sites for a number of different facilities across the Northwest.
