Working with MDE - Nutshell Enterprises, Inc

Learn about our experience working with MDE 

Art Shellhouse, arguably, has the longest history of any Maryland environmental professional working with clients to navigate MDE compliance regulations, adherence to MDE consent orders and ultimate MDE case closure, when appropriate. In particular, Nutshell has forty years of experience assisting clients to achieve and maintain compliance with the MDE Oil Control Program regulations, including: UST regulatory compliance; waste water permit compliance; site cleanup and monitoring compliance, in cases where a release has been documented. In more recent years, Nutshell has assisted its clients in seeking no further action required status, issued by the MDE Land Restoration Division, so that real estate transactions can move forward. Nutshell also has experience navigating the MDE Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) application process, with intent to establish inculpable status for innocent purchasers of contaminated properties. 

Nutshell currently specializes in Phase I and Phase II investigation; however, Nutshell’s comprehensive environmental consulting experience lends a wide scope to Nutshell’s ability to recognize environmental liability and to advise clients as to their options, based on the results of the Phase I and Phase II reports of discovery.
