Environmental Compliance Documentation (NEPA/CEQA)

Mr. Norling has, since the implementation of his career in the early 1990’s, prepared a myriad of
environmental studies, and thus, has nearly 23 years of experience in assessing environmental
impacts and implementing the requirements of the National and California Environmental Policy
Acts (NEPA/CEQA). This experience is particularly significant in that his work with local agencies,
on issues where public controversy was focused, has produced a track record of substantial success in
devising practical approaches to the mitigation of potential environmental concerns. WRC’s
NEPA/CEQA support services are comprehensive and encompass all aspects of the NEPA/CEQA
process, including scoping, identification and evaluation of alternatives, resource surveys and
inventories, assessment of environmental consequences, mitigation, monitoring, and permitting.
WRC provides the full breadth of technical capabilities and the depth in each discipline to evaluate the
most complex technical issues. However, successful completion of the NEPA/CEQA process also
requires experience coordinating an experienced team, ensuring compliance with the strict
NEPA/CEQA process guidelines, coordinating with regulatory agencies, and developing a quality
final product.
 Project Coordination. A significant challenge in developing successful NEPA/CEQA documents
is coordinating a team of technically-diverse, often remote, specialists. Mr. Norling brings to
WRC, extensive experience in managing and preparing NEPA/CEQA documents, as well as
coordinating NEPA/CEQA teams with representatives from other companies.

 Procedural Compliance. In
addition to adequate technical
evaluation of potential impacts, the
principal regulatory issue
surrounding NEPA/CEQA
compliance is compliance with
procedural requirements. This
means that for each project, all
related and connected issues must
be included and analyzed. Also,
proposed actions and reasonable
alternatives must be identified in
sufficient detail so that reasonably
foreseeable consequences can be
adequately analyzed. WRC
recognizes the crucial importance
of consistent, careful adherence to
the NEPA/CEQA process,
particularly with regard to legal
challenges that have become
increasingly common.

 Agency Coordination and Consultation. Throughout his career, Mr. Norling has established an
excellent record regarding the procedural adequacy of the NEPA/CEQA process. Part of the
success is due to his in-depth understanding of the consultative process involving state and federal
agencies involved with NEPA/CEQA. Mr. Norling has been particularly successful with the
comprehensive incorporation all Section 7 consultations. WRC understands the importance and
necessity of compliance and coordination with state and federal agencies responsible for natural
resources management. This is critically important where proposed actions have the potential to
affect sensitive, threatened, or endangered species or their habitat, under the federal or California
Endangered Species Acts.
