BBJ Group’s environmental professionals in the Nashville office serve clients nationally and specifically across the Southeast. Our consultants have lived and worked in the Southeast for more than 35 years and know the local, Federal, and state-specific regulations and regulators associated with multi-media environmental compliance.

Our client list includes law firms, Federal agencies, non-governmental organizations and non-profits, Fortune 500 manufacturers, and land developers. Our staff have extensive experience and expertise with these types of projects:

  • Property transaction due diligence assessments,
  • Brownfield re-development of sites with constituents of concern,
  • Coal combustion residuals (CCR) disposal site operation, monitoring, and closure compliance,
  • Landfill design, operation, disposal, and monitoring standards,
  • Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) permitting and compliance for manufacturing facilities,
  • Groundwater monitoring programs for regulated facilities,
  • Site investigation and corrective actions associated with contaminants in soil, sediment, and groundwater,
  • Site investigations in karst geologic environments with conduit groundwater flow, and
  • Expert testimony and litigation.

Our work crosses multiple regulatory programs for permitting and compliance associated with OSHA, USEPA, and state-equivalent regulations. Our staff are experienced writing Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs), multi-media environmental compliance audits, Tier II reporting under EPCRA, and Form R reporting for TRI facilities. Our due diligence staff have extensive experience with Phase 1 and 2 Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs), Limited Compliance Reviews (LCRs), and voluntary brownfield clean-up programs. Our investigative and corrective action experience includes projects associated with CERCLA, RCRA, and state-equivalent regulations.

Example projects include the following:

Brownfield Redevelopment

Environmental, Health & Safety

BBJ Group provides ongoing EHS compliance assistance to a manufacturing facility in the greater Nashville area. BBJ Group consultants worked with the client to determine their EHS compliance needs then developed a schedule to address issues that were identified. Types of EHS compliance assistance have included EHS and ISO audits, preparation of an SPCC Plan and SWPPP, Sustainability Reporting, onsite EHS-related training, waste characterization studies, regulatory-required stormwater sampling and reporting, EPCRA (Tier II and TRI) reporting, and air, wastewater, and stormwater permitting. BBJ Group continues to work with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), State and Local Emergency Planning agencies, Fire Marshals, Health Departments and Tennessee OSHA (TOSHA) to ensure the facility is aware of their obligations with Federal, State and local EHS laws, regulations and recordkeeping requirements.

RCRA Closure

BBJ Group consultants developed a Conceptual Site Model (CSM) for a geologically complex site with chlorinated solvent soil and groundwater contamination regulated under RCRA. The site was a former manufacturing facility that was sold and was no longer used for manufacturing. Underground karst geologic conditions created differential weathering of the limestone bedrock, creating preferential groundwater flow pathways in the residuum aquifer and conduit flow in portions of the bedrock. The groundwater monitoring system included wells drilled into different depths of the interconnected aquifer. The CSM and historical groundwater monitoring results were used to support closure.
