As a part of the due diligence and environmental permit process, it is imperative to understand the resource agencies involved in any project. The staff at Headwaters has had the opportunity to assists clients in the transportation, oil & gas and private development sectors with their regulatory compliance needs, including within the coastal zone boundaries, specifically within the Gulf Coast States. In each instance, coastal authorities were engaged in the evaluation process. Without the knowledge and understanding of each regulatory permit process, delays and increased cost would be expected. Headwaters has based its reputation on its involvement and relationships with each governing agency streamlining the review process for clients. Special Use Permits (SUP), Coastal Use Permits (CUP) or other, can be obtained from each State coastal zone regulatory authority in conjunction with the other Local, State and Federal actions required for the completion of the project. Headwaters provides the knowledge and confidence to guide our clients through each facet of the environmental permit process within this ever evolving regulatory environment.
