How we work in California

Environmental Consulting in the Golden State

If you own a business in California, there's a lot to keep up with when it comes to environmental rules and regulations that can impact your operation. In fact, California has some of the most strict environmental regulations in the country!

These policies are put into place by regulatory agencies that govern environmental matters - and in California - there are a lot of them. Not only do you need to worry about keeping up with the Federal Environmental Protection Agency, but you also need to keep up with regulations imposed by the:

  • California Air Resources Board
  • California Department of Conservation
  • California Department of Toxic Substances Control
  • California Department of Water Resources
  • California Environmental Protection Agency
  • California Integrated Waste Management Board

And that's not even to mention regulatory agencies at the local, county, and city level that might apply to you.

Sound like a lot? It is! Luckily, you don't have to do it alone. We here at RMA have over 30 years of experience helping all kinds of businesses deal with environmental regulations in California and across the country.

So, if you're feeling overwhelmed that you just learned you need a new permit, want to pursue more sustainable business practices, or just want an assessment of where your company stands environmentally - reach out, we'd be happy to help!

Frequently asked questions

Most operations in the United States subject to environmental regulations should focus on regulations coming from the Federal government, their respective state environmental agency, and any local agencies (regional, county, or city). However, additional concerns outside of the realm of environmental regulations, such as Environmental Justice issues, can impact facilities in areas where no other regulations might apply. Also bear in mind that regulators at any level, from the Federal government to your local community, can, within reason, visit your facility or ask for a demonstration of compliance, especially when it comes to obtaining new permits, renewals, facility construction, modification, expansion, etc.

Getting into compliance is like buying a car - how much you'll spend depends on what you need. For locations with few regulatory concerns, environmental compliance can be a cheap and easy thing. For large, complex operations, environmental compliance could cost a small fortune. There's different ways of looking at it too, from regulatory fees paid to government agencies, to the costs of hiring consultants or other outside help, to facility modifications, ongoing compliance tasks, and more.

Just like the price, the timeframe all depends. Some compliance concerns can be identified, the proper paperwork filled out in a few hours, and once you mail that documentation out, you're "in compliance" with environmental regulations. Other regulatory concerns take months to years to apply for, revise, and ultimately get permits and approvals. Again, smaller, simpler operations tend to be able to get into compliance very quickly, while larger, more complex facilities will take much, much longer.
