Anchor QEA’s Energy Sector is focused on companies involved in the exploration and refining of oil and integrated power utility companies. Our employees have worked with integrated power utilities for many years, resulting in an understanding of utility issues and the utility perspective. Anchor QEA has nationally recognized experts in coal combustion residuals (CCR); decontamination for decommissioning and demolition; manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites; polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs); fish passage evaluations and contaminated sediments.
Anchor QEA is also an active member of the Utilities Solid Waste Activities Group and is a vendor for the Electric Power Research Institute. Anchor QEA has prepared guidance documents for the electric utility industry on a range of topics, including monitored natural attenuation in groundwater, corrective action for closed and closing ash ponds, groundwater-surface water interactions at CCP landfills and impoundments, and assessment of corrective measures. A guidance document on substation decommissioning is in progress.
Anchor QEA has worked on various legacy sites with both impacted soil and groundwater. Our staff are trained to work at active coal and gas fired facilities, hydroelectric facilities and transmission and distribution facilities. We routinely work with federal agencies and public and private utilities to solve complex fishery and water quality issues, with experience spanning dozens of hydroelectric facilities and hatcheries throughout the United States.
