Expertise at TQNEPA

Our company CEO is Dr. Heidi West. She has had more than 20 years experience in environmental planning and impact analysis and has managed, coordinated, written or rewritten more than 15 EISs and dozens of EAs. She is an excellent facilitator, coordinator and analyst, and in addition to NEPA documents, has rewritten the NEPA regulations and handbook for the National Park Service and conducted more than 200 NEPA training sessions for nearly every federal agency charged with following the National Environmental Policy Act.

Beyond NEPA

Total Quality NEPA also offers non-NEPA environmental planning, such as in the making of an agency general management plan or forest management plan. This service can include the facilitation of a small agency group through creating the basic elements of the plan, to full-scale analysis of options, pros and cons and selection of a preferred approach. TQN is also experienced and able to offer permitting services, particularly under the regulations of the National Historic Preservation Act, the Endangered Species Act, wetlands and floodplains executive orders and section 404 of the Clean Water Act.
