We provide the site-specific water quality answers you need — not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Complying with water quality regulations requires consistent management and oversight. You know that the unexpected could lead to fines, environmental liabilities, or bad publicity — and you want your senior management to rest assured that regulatory compliance is under control. When dealing with industrial wastewater discharges under National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting, discharges to municipal sewer treatment works, and oil pollution prevention planning, you simply can’t afford compliance-related surprises. 

At Haley & Aldrich, our water quality consultants know the key to your success is proactive water quality management planning. The plans we develop with our clients are efficient and effective because we ensure they are site and industry-specific, can be easily integrated with your existing operations, and take near-term facility plans — such as changes in operations and expansions — into consideration.  

To develop a custom, proactive approach, our water quality consulting team first assesses your existing facility’s plans and policies. We also conduct engineering evaluations to understand the impact of discharge to receiving waters or a downstream treatment plant, and apply our deep understanding of the regulatory framework, including state or local requirements. This approach can expedite the issuance of permits and provide a framework to assess how changes in your business may impact the ability to consistently meet water quality discharge criteria.
