An environmental summary created by the ENVS 560/L Watershed Systems class in the M.S. in Environmental Science programat CSUMB.

The Role of Environmental Consultants

Environmental consultants are generally hired by private, commercial, or public clients to assist in environmental assessments and regulation compliance. The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) is the predominant environmental regulation that environmental consultants in California are hired to ensure compliance with, usually in the form of preparation of or contribution to an Environmental Impact Report (EIR). Additionally, environmental consultants provide various services to inform and advise clients about their unique requirements to maintain regulation compliance. Monterey County provides a list of county approved consultants.

Consulting Firms

The following table is a result of a survey of environmental consulting firms and their various local projects in the Central Coast Region. The survey was conducted by CSUMB's ENVS 560 class. To search environmental consultants by project area, refer to Environmental Consultants in Central California by Project Area.
