Technical Consultation, Data Analysis and Litigation Support for the Environment.

SWAPE has conducted numerous EIR / EIS reviews for clients with concerns about significant environmental impacts associated with a development or aspects of a development plan’s mitigation alternative(s) that have been inadequately evaluated. We have reviewed dozens of CEQA related documents for residential, commercial and mixed-use developments. Our work on these issues has included testimony to review boards, presentations in public forums, and the preparation of declarations or reports identifying the hazards and potential impacts associated with the project and deficiencies present in the CEQA documents.

SWAPE has provided technical review and comments on proposed development projects relating to the following topics / issues:

  • Geology
  • Soils
  • Seismicity
  • Hazardous Materials
  • Environmental Impacts
  • Hydrology
  • Water Supply
  • Water Quality
  • Storm Water
  • Air Quality
  • Circulation
  • Traffic Noise
  • Visual Resources
  • Cumulative Impacts

In the process of our review of proposed projects and the associated CEQA documents, we examine a substantial amount of additional information, including regulatory agency case files, government databases, and other sources. Typically, new information or facts concerning suspected hazards or environmental impacts are identified that have not been addressed in the EIR / EIS documents and selected mitigation alternatives.
