Navigating the Environmental regulatory process to create strong communities and sustainable resources

Natural resources, planning and environmental regulations are at the forefront of almost every project in our communities. Moore Engineering works with our clients to identify and plan for environmental concerns and regulations that need to be addressed prior to project construction.

Our environmental services capabilities enhance our ability to provide comprehensive engineering and project implementation, including planning, engineering design, environmental review, permitting, and construction management. We have extensive experience with environmental review for a variety of projects in Minnesota and North Dakota that has allowed us to engage with numerous state and federal agencies and staff. We understand the complexities of the environmental regulatory process and partner with our clients to gain the necessary approvals for successful and sustainable projects.
