Development and redevelopment of existing and “pristine” sites come with a unique set of challenges that go beyond the normal planning, permitting, structural, and construction issues with which developers are accustomed to dealing. Even on seemingly pristine land, there may have been historical use related to the agricultural industry that could include old underground farm tanks that have been neglected and/or left behind, pesticide use that could include synthetic organochlorine, organophosphorous, or arsenic-based pesticides, or simply a dump area on the property that could include buried waste that may contain heavy metals, PCBs, and other hazardous chemicals. In some regions, such as San Diego County, what appears to be undeveloped land may once have been a military site where unexploded ordnance may be an issue.

There are many ways to assist the developer and work with the regulatory agency to minimize project disruption and reduce the financial and schedule impacts, but it takes time, local regulatory knowledge, and personal relationships with key players to provide these important benefits. At SNYDER GEOLOGIC, we have developed these key insights and relationships to assist our clients to meet their goals.

Often times, SNYDER GEOLOGIC is called on to a construction job when the project has already begun. We are called because an environmental issue has come to light, whether it is an underground storage tank, buried drum(s), burn pit, disposal site, water discharge permit issue, or similar type of environmental issue, and the project needs to keep moving forward with the least amount of schedule delay and cost to the project. Because of our size, management style, experience, and knowledge of the regulatory setting and staff, we are perfectly positioned to help a developer or contractor with these types of challenges and keep the project moving forward, while balancing the regulatory requirements to which the project is now subject.
