Getting your potential project permitted can be overwhelming, confusing and at times frustrating. Our expertise in the permitting process is extensive and we can handle the process from Pre-Application through approval. We can also advise and review applications before submission. MES handles DEP, Army Corps. and NPRA Tier I, II & III permitting.
Third Party Inspection
Maine Environmental Solutions is a DEP listed and approved Third Party Inspector for the State of Maine.
Third party inspection of erosion and stormwater control practices is often a condition of project permitting. Hiring a third party to provide regular inspection and reporting is the best way to be sure your project is in compliance and we understand that creativity is often your best tool when dealing with erosion control, site-work and stormwater.
Gravel Road Design and Management Planning
Maine has thousands of miles of dirt and gravel roads. Maintaining these roads can be a huge challenge for individuals, municipalities or road associations with limited budgets for annual improvements. Having a detailed maintenance plan with emphasis on properly fixing the worst sites first vs. annually buying yards of gravel will save you money. Guaranteed! Our plans are thorough, detailed and easy to understand. This is the best investment you can make in your gravel road.
A properly designed and built gravel road can provide years of reliable, trouble-free service. For more information, visit our Gravel Road Maintenance page.
Phase I Environmental Assessment
Our Environmental Assessments provide detailed due-diligence reporting to give peace of mind for potential development, property transactions, easements holders and a variety of municipal projects.
Erosion Control Planning
Two abutting landowners shared the cost to implement the MES design that fixed this drainage way. The site had been a chronic erosion problem along their boundary for years.
Following a good erosion and sediment control plan for your construction is the best way to prevent costly violations and unneeded environmental impacts. Our team has years of experience writing and presenting plans to planning boards and review committees. Erosion planning should be looked at as insurance for your project.
We specialize in drainage and shoreline stabilization design and planning.
