Environmental Compliance for Cannabis Cultivation

Hurvitz Environmental Services Inc. (HES) is a full service environmental company that can assist cannabis cultivators in complying with the Regional Water Quality Control Boards (RWQCB) requirements for Cannabis Cultivation Waste Discharges (Order # R1-2015-0023). HES has 20 years of experience working with the RWQCB and has extensive knowledge and experience in the cannabis cultivation sector. Our compliance team consists of a Certified Hydrogeologist, a Professional Civil Engineer and a qualified Wetland and Wildlife Biologist.

Environmental compliance regulations can be a burden for both large and small cultivation operations. To comply with all of the emerging environmental regulations often involves dealing with more than one Agency, as well as, performing ongoing site maintenance and inspections. In addition, many cultivation sites include steep slopes, highly erodible soils or unstable areas. Land development in these areas often requires design and oversight by a licensed engineer or geologist. Our team has the specific knowledge needed to assess a property and identify what will be required to obtain and maintain environmental compliance for your cannabis cultivation operation.
