Environmental Engineers in Australia
Human activities over the past century have harmed our environment, hence the need for environmental engineers in Australia. We help your business face tough challenges when old contamination or new contamination has affected the environment, or to help prevent contamination and maintain compliance in properties or businesses you manage.
The Importance of Environmental Management Plans
One of the reasons a business requires environmental engineers is for the creation of environmental management plans. These plans are a powerful tool for businesses if used well to reduce the risk of catastrophic pollution events or slow pollution that causes contamination and devaluation of properties. Every organisation can ensure compliance and reduce environmental risk. However, it begins by creating and implementing an environmental management plan.
- Regardless of the size of your operation, every business can introduce a plan to decrease risk and waste. Council’s and EPA bodies are frequently fining or issuing notices on business around Australia, due to non compliance with little-known environmental regulation and standards.
- If you do have a spill or leak that contaminates, then having an EMP in place and showing it has been implemented will greatly help reduce liability and the potential of large EPA penalties that may be placed on both the business and directors as individuals.
EMPs come in a wide variety of forms including:
- construction environmental management plan (CEMP) - for managing environmental risks during construction.
- operational environmental management plan (OEMP) - for managing operational environmental risks for a business or facility.
- long term environmental management plan (LTEMP) - for ongoing management of pollution such as capped or contained contaminated material, a contaminated site that may present a risk to maintenance workers or soil excavations, or ongoing monitoring of potential or known contamination.
- Fuel system management plan or Environmental Protection Plan (EPP) - often required for underground petroleum storage systems (UPSS) such as service stations or depot sites, where risk controls are mandated to prevent petroleum contamination to the ground.
- Acid sulfate soil management plan (ASSMP) - these can be for during development construction or for long term management to prevent the risk of metals and contamination from acid sulfate soils.
- Asbestos management plan (AMP) - these can be for during development construction or for long term management to prevent the risk of known asbestos in building materials or soil.
- Groundwater management plan (GMP) - for contaminated groundwater management.
- Dewatering Management Plan (DMP) - for management of groundwater during deep excavations such as basement carparks during property developments.
What to Expect from iEnvironmental Australia Regarding Environmental Assessment
We are an environmental consultancy that was formed by experienced contaminated land practitioners. After years of consulting, we’ve finally developed the perfect solutions and strategies for environmental assessment in Australia. We are dedicated to providing exceptional service and using the latest developments in environmental sciences.
- We provide environmental due diligence services to ensure your project meets the requirements. As such, we do a preliminary and detailed site inspection and then provide fast, standardised pricing for diligence and liability. We’ll do a background check on the property, accessing records from the environmental and government databases.
- Contaminated water is a serious problem and poses a threat to human and environmental receptors. Our team will investigate the source and provide an innovative solution. Whether it’s water on the surface, underground or adjacent to your site, we’ll use the best suited technological advancements to develop a solution for you. Our professionals will investigate aspects of groundwater and hydrogeology and determine the risks. We’ll provide the necessary information to prevent unwanted expenses while remaining compliant.
- We have a team dedicated to sports fields and landfills. It’s common to find sports fields, parks and open spaces that have a history as landfills or filling activities. The knowledge and experience of our team assist businesses or government organisations to manage active and previous landfills. If you’re considering building on the site, then one of our staff will help mitigate the environmental risk in ongoing operations.
We’re unlike other consultancy firms as we integrate with other professionals from universities, research organisations, and other consultancies to find the best solution.
