EA was founded in 1973 in response to promulgation of the Clean Water Act, and we continue to develop responsible solutions for our clients in meeting regulatory requirements while acknowledging economic realities and sustaining public acceptance. By integrating technical and management expertise, EA provides value-added solutions to environmental issues and concerns that our clients are required to address.

Our diverse staff of subject matter experts provide comprehensive and integrated approaches for licensing and permitting to an array of private sector clients (e.g., pulp and paper, refining, manufacturing, and steam; hydropower; and other renewable electricity generation), municipal water and wastewater, and federal and state clients (e.g., U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, and Department of Defense all Branches, Bureau of Reclamation, and National Resources Conservation Service).
Applying the latest available scientific tools and information, EA establishes the geographic and temporal scope of the analyses and identifies the baseline conditions for affected aquatic and terrestrial resources. We have in-depth experience with field studies, ecological data analysis, problem identification, plan formulation, alternative assessments, impacts analysis, and preparation or technical review of feasibility studies, environmental assessments, and environmental impact statements. Our projects include the documentation and evaluation of existing conditions, as well as impact evaluation of proposed client initiatives.
EA’s pioneer projects were providing aquatic services to the utility industry, based in our academic expertise. While the types of aquatic services EA offers and the client base that we provide these services for has grown and diversified, we have maintained the same innovative, science-based approach that EA was founded upon. It is our integrity and attention to detail that has made EA a respected leader in aquatic services for more than 40 years.
Through the integration of engineering, science, and technology, we offer our clients sound solutions to ecosystem restoration—from ecosystem evaluation and site selection through field investigations, project design, permitting, and monitoring. Our clients rely on us to restore estuaries and salt marshes, create wetlands, remove dams, beneficially re-use dredged material, restore contaminated sites, and enhance fish passages…and we often succeed with award-winning results.
EA is an industry leader in conducting marine environmental sampling, as well as oceanographic measurement and monitoring services to federal and state agencies, port authorities, and commercial clients throughout the United States.
EA is recognized for our expertise in the management of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) quality assurance environmental review.
