Orion Environmental Associates specializes in technical environmental services, with expertise in the areas of water quality and water resources, hazardous materials, air quality, noise, and biological resources. Within these areas, Orion provides a range of services related to environmental and regulatory compliance, including environmental impact assessment and documentation, environmental siting evaluation, sampling and monitoring programs, field investigations, computer modeling, and data management. Orion also has extensive experience in overall project management, agency coordination, community outreach programs, and other activities required for environmental compliance. Founded in 1989, Orion is located in downtown San Francisco and has conducted major environmental projects throughout the San Francisco Bay area and Northern California.

The engineers and scientists comprising Orion's professional staff have long-standing experience on a diverse range of projects. We have analyzed and evaluated environmental issues associated with major infrastructure, capitol improvement and master planning projects as well as with a wide range of residential, commercial, industrial, transportation, airport, and mixed-use developments. Orion has conducted basic research involving water quality and wastewater reclamation as well as long-term field investigations, remediation, and monitoring studies. We focus on development and implementation of mitigation measures to balance the needs of a proposed project with the needs of the community, regulatory agencies, and the environment. Our staff has worked on major construction sites, assisting contractors and construction management teams in environmental compliance and community liaison, and has coordinated major remedial action projects.

Orion works attentively with clients, public agencies, and the community. Through our comprehensive and objective evaluation of data, we assist decision-makers in identifying environmental factors affecting a project, facilitating compliance with environmental regulations, evaluating alternatives, and developing feasible mitigation measures through a project's planning, design, construction and operation phases. All projects are completed with close attention to client communication, technical accuracy, scheduling, budgets, and legal adequacy. We maintain extensive quality control for all work products. Orion's mission is to combine quality technical expertise with personal, direct services for our clients.
