The SEQR Process

The multidisciplinary blend of AFI Environmental Consultant’s technical staff is ideally suited to the comprehensive and systematic evaluation of environmental impacts resulting from a multitude of sensitive project areas. We value effective and timely identification and analysis of impacts and mitigation alternatives. It is this fundamental perception that directs the preparation of Generic, Draft and Final Environmental Impact Statement documents.

The SEQR process uses the EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) to examine ways to reduce or avoid problematic environmental impacts related to a certain action, which includes an analysis of all reasonable alternatives to the action. 

SEQR encourages communication among government agencies, project sponsors and the general public. Our capabilities are not limited to preparation of Part 360 permit applications, Environmental Assessment Forms, DEIS, and FEIS. We encompass the full range of services required to negotiate project specifics with the lead agency, regulatory personnel, local governments, and the public. Representatives of our team are accustomed to attending and participating in public meetings and hearings, scooping sessions, and issues conferences that are often required as the SEQR process progresses.

BECI was instrumental in obtaining the approval of a complete DEIS, prepared for the expansion of a major Sanitary Landfill located in western New York. We have been successful in obtaining negative declarations for a number of solid waste management facilities, including the Recyclables Handling and Recovery Facility, which service the City of Buffalo, NY.
