Environmental Services

The Wilson Environmental Department is staffed with biologists, geologists, archaeologists, and geographic information system (GIS) specialists well versed in all aspects of environmental planning, permitting, compliance, and training. The team has been supporting the electric utility industry for more than 16 years and has considerable experience working with the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tribal Nations, and other local and state agencies across the nation. Our staff hold regional and national stormwater certifications to prepare Erosion and Sediment Control Plans in compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System and to perform inspections during construction. Additionally, the Environmental Department is fully supported by Wilson’s executive leadership, integrated with operations, and is proud of the success seen through positive and collaborative relationships fostered with our crews and subcontractors.

Wilson is Committed to Environmental Sustainability

We are committed to providing information to our clients, regulators, business partners, and interested members of the public about the content and performance of our Environmental Sustainability Program (Program). Wilson developed the Program to ensure that our business practices reflect our corporate philosophy of minimizing impacts to the environment through resource avoidance and protection, and through the implementation of sustainable operations at all levels of our organization. As part of the Program, we track resource use, set sustainability target goals, measure performance, develop sustainability-focused improvements to business practices, and publicly report the findings on an annual basis.
