CGRS lands City environmental-services contract

Environmental Assessment

Fort Collins, Colo. – The City of Fort Collins has selected longstanding local company CGRS, Inc. to support general environmental service needs for the next five years.

The contract expands on previous projects CGRS had with the City in which CGRS performed petroleum-related fueling compliance and environmental services, including hydraulic or transformer oil release and assistance with removing orphan tanks. Under the new general environmental service contract, the City may call on CGRS if it requires:

  • Due-diligence and advanced environmental assessments of properties under contract;
  • Site remediation;
  • Vapor, soil and air quality assessments;
  • Remedial technology design selection and implementation;
  • Regulatory-compliance assistance;
  • Environmental auditing;
  • Human health- and environmental-risk assessment;
  • Air-Quality Permitting, Monitoring, Modeling and Compliance;
  • Litigation support
  • Emergency response to hazardous spills, leaks, tank rollovers and more.

“We’re proud to be a member of the Fort Collins community and proud to provide consulting services for the City of Fort Collins on their environmental issues,” said Glen Vallance, associate hydrologist with CGRS.

While the City doesn’t give preference to local companies, he noted that choosing Fort Collins-based CGRS means tax dollars will re-circulate in the local economy and results in fewer travel expenses and emissions when CGRS responds to a call.

In 2017 the City was awarded the Malcolm Bridge National Quality Award which includes recognition for a customer/community focus that starts with the needs, expectations and satisfaction of its customers – its businesses and overall community expectations and service among them. CGRS’s service will meet if not exceed the same level of expectations that helped gain the City such recognition.
