E2PM prepared State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) and Phase One Documentation, Coastal Area Facility Review Act (CAFRA) permits, and consulted with the Endangered and Nongame Species Program (ENSP) for nesting osprey near a proposed cellular communication facility located in Sea Girt, New Jersey. The Phase One report investigated on-site and adjacent properties to determine if any environmental concerns were present at the site location. E2PM used environmental database reports, historical aerials and topographical maps to aid in the Phase One process. Using historical information E2PM can determine if there are any potential off-site sources of contamination that could affect the site area. Also through historical information, E2PM determine if there were any potential on-site historical sources of contamination. E2PM also provided lead and asbestos investigations to determine any potential health affect at the site location where potential equipment may disturb areas of Lead Based Paint (LBP) or Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM).
E2PM also prepared environmental permits to keep the project compliant with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). E2PM prepared a CAFRA General permit for the proposed wireless equipment. The permit was approved by the NJDEP in a timely manner.
E2PM prepared a NEPA Report for the proposed wireless site. The purpose of the NEPA studies was to address Federal NEPA requirements which include wilderness areas, wildlife preserves, endangered species habitat, historical resources, Indian religious sites and floodplains. Studies included literature and record searches and field investigations. E2PM assessed indicators of significance (factors to consider) in conformance with NEPA Guidelines. Our staff of historians quickly determined if any historical resources are being impact by the project and worked closely with State and Federal Historical Preservation Departments to expedite the SHPO process to prevent project delay.
Due to existing nesting ospreys, E2PM consulted with ESNP personnel to allow the project to be completed with minimum disturbance to the nesting ospreys and with minimum delays to the client.
