Keeping your project in compliance with environmental law

As a developer, you are probably aware that your project will need to comply with a plethora of rules, regulations and laws. Some of those will include environmental law concerns, which can be easily violated if you are not careful. It may be beneficial to understand the federal and Georgia laws that apply to your particular project and know how to remain in compliance with them upfront, so that you do not experience issues later.

Protecting water sources before you develop

Although people may prefer the taste of bottled water, many still wouldn't think twice before filling a glass from the sink or making a cup of coffee from tap water. The water that washes your dishes and makes ice in your freezer likely comes from underground water sources in your community. With the ongoing development in Georgia's cities and towns, how can you know if your water source is safe and clean?

Land development may require an environmental assessment

The state of Georgia has taken steps designed to fiercely protect its beautiful landscape and waterways. This is why land development can no longer happen without some consideration for its impact on the environment. As such, it may be necessary to obtain an environmental assessment before any work can be done to develop a piece of land.

Company admits to breaking environmental law in Georgia

Some Environmental Protection Agency and Georgia Department of Natural Resources investigations end in more than just civil penalties. In some cases, violations of an environmental law result in criminal penalties. Individuals can end up spending time in prison, and companies can end up paying hefty fines.

About the EPA's ROE for protecting the environment

Dry cleaning and protecting the environment can go together

The Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the state of Georgia have all issued regulations and cautions regarding the use of dry cleaning chemicals. Not only could they cause health issues for those exposed, but they can also harm the environment. That might make it odd to say that dry cleaning and protecting the environment can go together.

Common dry cleaning chemical could be hazardous to your health

Many Georgia residents take their clothes, winter coats and bed comforters, among other things, to the dry cleaner without thinking about the chemicals involved in the process. They simply count on dry cleaners to get out stains while cleaning their items. 

Protecting the environment is the goal of Georgia's EPD

Everyone in Georgia deserves clean water, clean air and unpolluted land. The state's Environmental Protection Division is tasked with doing what it can to ensure that the environment is sustainable and healthy for its residents and those who visit here. In order to meet those goals, the agency is charged with several tasks aimed at protecting the environment.

You need a partner in protecting the environment here in Georgia

Progress is often good for the economy and good for the residents of Georgia. What it has not traditionally been good for is the environment. Rapid expansion and development spawned numerous regulations and laws aimed at protecting the environment. Now, public and private enterprises alike may need some help making sure that they do not inadvertently violate federal or state environmental laws.
