Regulatory Permitting

We Know The Permitting Process

The permitting process can be challenging. AMT’s project teams are experts at understanding what permits are needed for your project and moving through the permitting process efficiently. In fact, some team members are expedited permit reviewers for regional agencies.  We enjoy an excellent record of projects starting without permitting delays.

Preparing for Permits

One benefit to working with AMT is our vast knowledge of permitting requirements and the potential pitfalls for many jurisdictions in the mid-Atlantic region.  Additionally, we’re adept at thoroughly researching and identifying federal, state and local regulatory permit requirements heading into new projects to ensure we’re planning and designing with the most up-to-date knowledge.

While different state and local governments have their own regulations in addition to those established by the federal government, we know that permitting is most frequently required for work involving stormwater management and erosion/sediment control, work in public roadways, maintenance of traffic, and a host of environmental impact concerns. (See our Environmental Permitting section).

Our Permitting Works with You

We will identify each constraint facing the development plan or design, and determine the permitting documentation necessary, to conduct studies with the best professional expertise and guidance, so that we can provide clear recommendations going forward.

We will help you plan, design and construct projects meeting all regulatory requirements by integrating our regulatory permitting team into every aspect of the design. This includes identifying site or right of way constraints, minimizing the impacts of the planned construction, and then mitigating those impacts to the extent of the legal requirements.

Examples of some of our permitting considerations include:

  • Section 404 – Wetlands & Waterways, Tidal & Non-tidal
  • Section 401 – Water Quality Certifications
  • Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs)
  • Chesapeake Bay Critical Area
  • Maryland Forest Conservation Act (FSDs, FCPs)
  • Maryland Department of the Environment
  • District of Columbia Department of the Environment
  • Virginia Department of Environmental Quality
  • NDPES Permits
  • Section 4(f) and Section 106 coordination
  • Water Appropriations Permits
  • Air Quality Conformance
  • Stormwater Management Water Quality concerns
  • Environmental Documentation to support permit applications
