BOEM Noise Assessment Study
In 2010, ESS was chosen as a subcontractor to support Cornell University in a noise assessment study for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to better understand the cumulative effects of noise from renewable energy facility construction and operation activities on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).

I have been very pleased with each of the projects I have worked on with ESS. From training volunteers in the field to lab work to filing Notices of Intent for lake management projects, all have gone perfectly. The deliverables have always been very thorough, professional, and well-crafted, leaving little room for comment. I look forward to our next project.
Cultural Resource Studies
Cultural resources include archaeological sites and historic structures that meet eligibility criteria for listing on National Register of Historic Places. For projects that need federal or state permits or will receive public funds, consideration of potential impacts on cultural resources is required. ESS has over 10 years of experience selecting project-specific teams of cultural resource management professionals and tailoring cultural resources studies to achieve timely and cost-effective compliance with applicable federal, state, tribal, and/or local requirements.
Team Approach to Cultural Resources Impact Assessment
Our team approach to cultural resources impact assessment and historic preservation ensures that ESS assembles the right mix of specialists and studies for each particular project. Cultural resources are considered during project planning to identify historic preservation needs. To streamline approval, ESS develops cultural resources survey and impact assessment work plans in close coordination with involved regulatory agencies. ESS has coordinated a wide variety of cultural resources studies and surveys over the last decade to secure project compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and/or applicable state or local historic preservation requirements. Settings for these cultural resources impact assessments have ranged from national parks and historic urban centers to rural farmland and open ocean.
