Cameron-Cole was established in 2001 as an independent environmental services firm. We are committed to conducting our business responsibilities consistent with the highest levels of performance expected by our clients, our employees and our shareholders. Our chosen field of services includes the most difficult issues that challenge society today, which require solutions that will stand the test of time. Recognizing these challenges, we are committed to deliver services and solutions that are the product of the best collaboration of all appropriate resources and expertise of the firm and which include solutions that recognize the social, economic and environmental implications.
During these uncertain times, the health of our
staff and clients is of the utmost priority as we navigate the
COVID-19 situation. At this point, as an essential business,
Cameron-Cole is open and providing our environmental management
services while following the CDC recommendations with the
appropriate measures to protect our staff both in the office and at
We have provided our staff with the CDC
recommendations and tips to stay healthy and prevent the spread of
germs, and what to do if they or a member of their household becomes
sick. Any staff member that is feeling unwell or has traveled to a
city or country that has a higher CDC level of COVID-19 risk is
required to stay home and self-quarantine.
We have also implemented work-at-home options,
conducting teleconferencing and video calls in lieu of in-person
meetings, and for those offices manned by essential personnel we are
limiting visitor access, practicing social distancing, and have
increased office sanitation procedures. We have prohibited all
non-essential business travel.
For our field staff who are visiting client
project sites, we have advised staff to avoid areas where people
gather and we require our staff to wear nitrile gloves prior to
touching any surfaces while on client premises, as well as when in
contact with any equipment or surfaces that may be open to the
public (e.g., gas stations) and client employees. We have instructed
staff to dispose of the gloves before entering their vehicles.
Furthermore, because the COVID-19 virus may survive on plastic and
steel for 2-3 days, company vehicle use is limited to one person per
weekly assignment to eliminate multiple users of the vehicle during

operational health physics, facility D&D, environmental
restoration, and radiological waste disposal. Jim is a
Certified Health Physicist and has worked on projects
throughout the Rocky Mountain Region. Jim has extensive
experience managing radiological response to unplanned
processing of Naturally-Occurring Radiological Material
(NORM) in regulated facilities, radiological licensing
modification and renewal support, and waste stream

Sciences from the University of Washington.
On January 22, 2020, the California Air
Resources Board (CARB) accredited Cameron-Cole, LLC to perform
verifications under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard Regulation (LCFS).
We are among the first group of verifications bodies to receive this
Cameron-Cole is approved to conduct
verification services for the following report types:
Fuel Pathway Applications and Fuel Pathway
Quarterly Fuel Transactions Reports for
Petroleum-Based Fuel Reports: Quarterly
Fuels Transactions Reports submitted by producers and importers
of gasoline or diesel, Crude Oil Quarterly and Annual Volumes
Reports, and Project Reports as listed in section 95500(e)
Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)
The LCFS is designed to decrease the carbon
intensity of California's transportation fuel pool and provide an
increasing range of low-carbon and renewable alternatives, which
reduce petroleum dependency and achieve air quality benefits. The
LCFS relies on accurate data monitoring, reporting, and verification
to support implementation and tracking of effectiveness. In 2018,
CARB approved amendments to add third-party verification
requirements to the LCFS to ensure data completeness, accuracy, and
conformance with the regulation—consistent with the verification
programs under California’s Cap-and-Trade Program and international
best practices. For more information, contact Chris Lawless at
In Washington, D.C., today the U.S.
EPA issued a formal 60-day comment period on advanced
notice of proposed rulemaking proposing to add PFAS to
the TRI list of chemicals for annual reporting.
The goal is to provide useful information to
stakeholders and to provide EPA with data on the release
and waste management of PFAS.
EPA is considering adding PFAS to its list of
chemicals of special concern and establishing lower
volumetric reporting thresholds.
Currently, the volumetric thresholds requiring
TRI reporting are 25,000 pounds for manufacturing or
processing facilities and 10,000 pounds for facilities
otherwise using a chemical on the TRI list.
However, EPA has established much lower
thresholds for chemicals that are considered persistent,
bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT).
These thresholds are 100 pounds for PBT chemicals
and 10 pounds for highly PBT chemicals.
The EPA is taking public comment on:
whether the reporting of PFAS
should occur for individual compounds or as a group;
which of the approximately 600
PFAS individual compounds should be listed and
what threshold should be set to
capture most of the releases from facilities that
must report; and
any additional toxicity
information that would support a listing under TRI.
