We Energies Consulting
We Energies has required extensive natural resources and environmental consulting for their annual 5,000-plus utility service upgrade, extension, replacement, relocation, and new service installation projects. Kapur & Associates, Inc. has provided this consulting service to We Energies including provision of wetland delineation, coordination for GPS mapping, review for and mapping of invasive species, review for threatened and endangered species impacts and provision of necessary related permitting, review for cultural and historical impacts, Chapter 30 waterway permitting, US ACOE and DNR wetland permitting, local/municipal erosion control, shoreland zoning and floodplain impacts permitting, WPDES Construction and High Capacity Well permitting, and erosion control design. We regularly attend pre-cons to advise construction crews about environmental and regulatory permit requirements on specific projects, and interact with environmental designers to avoid and minimize environmental impacts where possible.
We Energies has made an environmental commitment, not just with renewable energies, but also with protecting environmental resources including wetlands and waterways.
Environmental consulting provided to We Energies has assisted the company in reaching their goals to meet this commitment and has also brought efficiencies to We Energies by streamlining various design, field review and permitting processes leading to further cost savings for We Energies. Kapur staff members have worked directly with over 150 We Energies designers and customer service staff and have presented an environmental training program to over 1,500 We Energies staff and hired contractors.
