LEI was recently awarded grant funding through West Michigan Works as part of the Going PRO Talent Fund. The grant funding will be used throughout 2019 to provide on-going training for LEI employees. Specifically, courses that employees will be participating in include AutoCAD Civil 3D training, various wetland courses, drone operation, and mapping with drones utilizing GIS.

LEI assisted an roofing granular and abrasives manufacturer with industrial compliance related tasks at the client’s locations in Louisiana, Texas, Illinois, and Montana. Specifically, LEI assisted the client with storm water management and spill prevention and controls, to include the development of Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans and Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plans. A template was developed that allowed LEI to implement the Plans across the client’s multiple facilities, allowing each facility to have similar compliance plans for streamlined implementation and use. LEI’s knowledgeable staff were able to work with each state’s specific requirements, ensuring overall compliance with local, state, and federal environmental regulations.
