"I am a Land Use / Zoning Consultant residing in northern Illinois. I was a practicing attorney for almost 25 years before starting my private consulting business in 1994. My prior law practice was concentrated in municipal law where I routinely dealt with civil engineers on public projects including roads, storm-water and sanitary sewer facilities.
"In early 2011, I represented a client in regard to a wetland dispute under Section 404 of The Clean Water Act, involving the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It was necessary for me to analyze an historic concrete weir. After contacting several engineering firms, explaining the issue in detail, and receiving the "I'll get back to you response" but no definitive answer as to whether they could handle the request, I was fortunate to find KAM Solutions in Mattoon, Illinois. While they were over 150 miles from my work site, I found their staff to be not only courteous, but also eager to work on my project and informative as to the procedure required to analyze the weir.
"I retained their services and received an outstanding analysis of the concrete weir by a professional engineer, in an almost 40 page report. The report completely resolved my client's issue with the Army Corps. I would recommend their services to anyone." -- [Signed] Warren Strom
"[The] Pre-Construction Minutes [for the Lovington High School and Gymnasium Abatement and Demolition Project] look all good. Once again, I thank [KAM Solutions] much for your extra time on drawings and accuracy. [It] sure makes a big difference. As you know that is not the normal drawings we get [from other engineering consultant companies] on most jobs. Hope all is well and not going crazy yet.... Good Luck!" -- Kevin Mayall, U.S. Environmental Solutions
"Kent, thanks so much for your quick response [on underground fuel storage tank regulation]! You are a wealth of information. I think you made all of our weekends!" -- Jan Bush, Business Manager, Murphysboro Community Unit School District 186
