Ecosphere Environmental Services, founded in 1982 in Farmington, NM, is a full-service, woman-owned environmental consulting firm with extensive experience across the western United States.  Ecosphere specializes in environmental compliance and permitting, natural resources consulting, public outreach and participation, and environmental planning and monitoring.  The firm's areas of expertise include National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analyses, Endangered Species Act (ESA), Clean Water Act (CWA) compliance and permitting, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services.  The firm has a diverse client base comprised of local and federal government agencies, public and private industries (renewable energy companies, manufacturing, and telecommunications, including fiber optics), extractive industries (oil, natural gas, and mining), real estate developers, banks, tribal organizations, and private landowners.

Ecosphere provides comprehensive environmental regulatory compliance services to engineering firms working on infrastructure projects throughout the southwest United States, with a focus on New Mexico and the Four Corners area.  The firm's services include NEPA compliance from Categorical Exclusions through Environmental Impact Statements.  With a staff of 20 full-time biologists, Ecosphere provides complete ESA compliance with biological surveys, reports, evaluations (BEs), assessments (BAs), and formal Section 7 consultation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service.  Many of the firm's biologists are permitted by the US Fish and Wildlife Service to conduct species-specific protocol surveys.  The firm has a long history of completing CWA Sections 404, 402, and 401 requirements as administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers for small and large projects that involve work within the channel of jurisdictional waters of the US.  Ecosphere's staff of wetlands biologists, GIS specialists, and permitting specialists has conducted numerous wetland delineations in New Mexico and the Four Corners area.  The firm has also conducted hazardous material investigations, prepared SWPPPs, and conducted socioeconomic studies, air quality analyses, visual impact analyses, noise studies, and other environmental studies to assist engineering clients in complying with myriad laws, regulations, and Executive Orders that frequently apply to projects.
