Due to our long experience in regulatory compliance, Waterstone has performed waste classification for numerous industries both to support routine site operations and to provide expert testimony on litigated issues.

Regulatory Compliance Auditing

Government enforcement agencies, fiduciaries and business organizations publish environmental compliance records on the internet making access to environmental compliance information on individual businesses readily available. Waterstone guides clients in assessing the nature and potential risks of environmental non-compliance, and assists in the development of a programmatic approach for reducing or eliminating risks through pollution prevention and other proactive environmental management systems. Waterstone is fully versed in the requirements of the CAA, CWA, OPA, RCRA, CERCLA, TSCA, FIFRA, SDWA, and state and local laws and regulations.
