Our Firm

Who We Are

Founded in 2001, Burleson Consulting has grown to 32 environmental staff in our Sacramento, Monterey, Orange, and San Diego, California, area offices. We are a leading provider of environmental compliance and engineering services for federal, state, municipal, and industrial clients throughout California. Burleson provides quality environmental compliance, site assessment and remediation, and water resources services to government and private-sector clients. Our professionals have environmental experience and in-depth knowledge of the latest technologies, developments in environmental compliance, remediation, and permitting services. We are experienced with NEPA, CEQA, CERCLA, RCRA, and water quality permitting and monitoring.

Our environmental specialists work with project applicants, engineers, municipalities, and resource agencies to develop design alternatives that avoid or minimize impacts to sensitive resources. Our wetland permitting specialists have a comprehensive understanding of mitigation monitoring and permitting requirements associated with resource impacts and the implications on budget and schedule. Our experience includes protocol biological surveys, habitat mapping, wetland delineations, biological assessments, agency consultation, and public participation, including administrative records, hearings, stakeholder coordination, and public workshops. We provide construction worker training on threatened and endangered species and habitat identification. We have completed numerous environmental projects and have participated in Section 7 & 106 consultations; 1602, 404, and 401 permitting, wetland delineations, and special status species surveys.

Burleson successfully crafts feasible project design alternatives that qualify for expedited environmental review and often require fewer environmental permits through an approach that incorporates the environmental principles of avoidance and minimization and meets all technical engineering requirements. This directly benefits the project schedule and budget. We have completed multifaceted environmental documents for office complexes, power plants, surface water resources, transmission lines, and maintenance facilities.

The substantial site assessment and remediation experience of our scientists and engineers enable us to effectively solve our clients’ environmental contamination challenges. With expertise at preliminary assessments, site inspections, site characterization, and remedial investigations, Burleson brings a creative, cost-efficient approach to the characterization and remediation of contaminated sites. We also use site information to evaluate, identify, and implement sound remedies to support client goals. We have significant experience working at abandoned mine lands in remote areas, DOD facilities, and active industrial facilities.

Client Satisfaction

"Burleson Consulting was excellent to work with and very professional. They assembled a top-notch team of experts to study and propose solutions to the water supply challenges at Sutter National Wildlife Refuge. The communication was excellent throughout the project. This included project staff, contracting personnel, and interested stakeholders. As a result, the project was completed on time and on budget. I would not hesitate to use or recommend Burleson Consulting in the future."Kevin Clancy, Project Manager – United States Bureau of Reclamation

"Burleson provided exceptional services under this contract. Because of their successful work, they were awarded a $7M follow-on IDIQ contract in 2014, that also encompasses biological monitoring at former Fort Ord. They have consistently improved their plant material collection and propagation techniques and pass the savings onto the federal government. Burleson is a valuable team member on Fort Ord and I feel that they are true stewards of the environment." William K. Collins, BRAC Environmental Coordinator, US Army Corps of Engineers

"Burleson has been able to work with several government agencies (to include tribal groups and natural resource trustees) and several responsible parties to assist in progressing this site to a stage where technical and agency concerns can be identified and resolved. Strengths – overall and in depth understanding of mine site and CERCLA dynamics. Deficiencies – none. I would not hesitate to use Burleson." Daniel McMindes, USACE Liaison to EPA, US Army Corps of Engineers

"Burleson helped to manage the Sacramento Area Voltage Support Environmental Impact Statement. They came through and were always available during an ‘energy crisis’ in California. I will continue to work with them."Loreen McMahon, Project Manager - California Public Utilities Commission

"We appreciated Burleson’s great work, re: completing the draft EIR on the scheduled date (it was a tremendous task, but they completed it). All of them put a lot of work into it (it was a true team effort). They should all be proud of this accomplishment given the changes and obstacles encountered along the way, and I cannot thank them enough."Glenn M. Shuder, AIA, CFM, Chief Architect - Project Director, SMUD

"We chose Burleson Consulting because of their experience with the specific project matter in technical and regulatory issues and for their record of excellent communication skills in complex, multiparty projects. They were responsive to the matter and were sensitive to all relationships between the parties involved."Kevin Mayer, PE, Project Manager - USEPA
