Business has been steadily increasing in all areas of Adolfson Associates’ practice, says Molly Adolfson, president of the firm.

She says that one trend in the environmental industry is increased regulatory complexity with all projects, particularly federally funded projects.

The firm, she says, is seeing a high level of public interest in virtually every type of project, from roadway widenings to major infrastructure projects, to local sensitive areas inventories.

Adolfson completed the state and federal environmental review for King County’s Denny Way combined sewer overflow project.

Adolfson is doing a number of projects relating to the state’s shoreline management plan update, helping local jurisdictions determine how best to proceed under Ecology’s proposed rules.

In terms of new technology, the firm is using geographic information systems to link local land use with habitat, with clients such as the city of Redmond. The firm is also working on a number of wastewater reuse projects throughout the area.

Four new employees have been added to the firm this year. The firm’s geographic focus will remain in Washington and Oregon, and core service areas will remain the same over the next year.
