Leading the industry
in the protection of
water quality & fish resources

Featured Clients

We protect the environment so future generations can use and enjoy it like we do today.

We protect our clients so they can focus on building better projects.

At Point Environmental, we got into this industry because we enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing, and being outdoors, and have a general aversion to being trapped in an office.

We see the degradation of our natural environment and worry that our children and grandkids will not be able to have the same experiences that we’ve had. Human demand on the Earth is ever increasing and we believe in the responsible use of natural resources.

There is a better way to get along with the environment while getting the job done and Point Environmental serves the right way.


Get the peace of mind you deserve by letting us fulfill your inspector requirements.


Let us help with permitting and planning for your 1200-C permit or Construction Stormwater General Permit.
