Regulatory Compliance Services
& Environmental Clearance

Protecting Our Natural Resources

CMEC helps public and private developers responsibly navigate regulatory complexity, providing regulatory compliance services critical to receiving environmental clearance for projects of all sizes. Our shared goal is conserving and protecting the Earth’s natural resources including plants, soil, water, and wildlife so that they can persist and thrive for generations to come.

Over the years, we have evaluated hundreds of proposed projects including roadway/tollway improvements, electrical transmission lines and substations, oil/gas pipelines, and water/wastewater infrastructure linework and treatment facilities. Our experienced ecology staff includes wetlands specialists, biologists, range ecologists, foresters, and GIS specialists.
