Environmental Services


At Wessler Engineering, we work with both public and private clients to provide regulatory and environmental planning services. Various management plans are required to be implemented in an effort to prevent accidental spills and impacts to the environment. We develop plans to identify hazards, develop management procedures and train clients’ employees on handling and notification practices.

We understand construction projects require environmental, erosion control and other regulatory permits. To assist our clients, we provide erosion and sediment control planning and inspection and we prepare and submit construction plans and permits. We also help our clients with annual reporting required by federal and state agencies in order to remain in compliance.

Our Environmental Services team assists on nearly every design and construction project Wessler undertakes and collectively holds the following licenses and certifications:

  • Certified Erosion, Sediment and Stormwater Inspector (CESSWI)
  • Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM)
  • Certified Hazardous Material Manager (CHMM)
  • Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC)
  • Certified Water Loss Audit Validator
  • INDOT Certified Technician Program, Construction Procedures Level 2
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
  • Licensed Professional Engineer (PE)
  • Registered Pretreatment Coordinator (RPC).
