As an environmental consultant, Eady resolves complex environmental impact issues and helps clients safely plan for land uses that comply with federal, state, and local environmental laws and regulations. Under his guidance over 30,000 acres of California’s most productive oilfields have been returned to production and hundreds of new wells and facilities have been developed.
“Nathan’s experiences in the public and private sector give him the ability to communicate with the public and with regulatory agencies in a timely and efficient manner supported by science and facts,” said Thomas Rappolt, Vice President and Office Director of SCS Tracer Environmental.
