"Westhorp & Associates has been my Environmental Engineering firm since 1998. The reason I reached out for an Environmental firm was due to the submitting of a Permit application for a Construction and Demolition Debris Facility in Broward County, Florida. We experienced some difficulty in dealing with the agencies in the City and County and could not seem to get to first base with either one. Westhorp was hired to facilitate the process and the intermediary relationship with all Governmental agencies on behalf of my Company.
In a very short time frame they were able to get us through all agencies without any hiccups and a Permit/License was issued in a timely manner. Since this first Positive experience with the Firm and the owner Brenda Westhorp and her employees, all of whom are very competent, courteous and professional in their continued handling of our ongoing Permit Modifications, New license Applications, Ground Water, Methane, Leachate Collection and Consultant work has always reached a positive outcome and most importantly, knowing that I have professionals that can get the job done working on my behalf. Today, Westhorp is still handling our Environmental projects and its due, to their vast knowledge and Expertise in the Environmental Industry and the expeditious handling of very Sensitive and complex Environmental issues. In addition and most important, I always get a good night sleep knowing that Westhorp and Associates is on the job".
