Environmental Permitting & Resource Management

Today’s regulatory environment is a reflection of the vulnerabilities of our environmental resources. Wetlands, surface water, groundwater, open space, and clean air; our environmental resources are not limitless. As such, virtually every project requires some form of state or federal environmental permitting to ensure the sustainability of these resources for generations to come.

Horizons Engineering is a sole-source for all environmental permitting and resource management needs. With in-house capabilities, Horizons provides clients with an integrated approach to acquiring environmental entitlements, project construction, and post-construction resource management.
