“SterRx had the pleasure of working with the Richert team who provided guidance in working through issues regarding our wastewater permit. Their in-depth knowledge of the EPA regulations and strategic advice allowed SterRx to avoid tens of thousands of dollars of infrastructure investment. Throughout the process they were competent and professional. We will certainly call upon them again as future need arises.”

Anthony Pilcher, Ph.D., Director of R&D at SterRx, LLC., Plattsburgh, New York

“Richert Environmental has assisted our company for 20 years with a variety of environmental projects. Betsy Richert, the owner, understands the regulatory process, is diligent and detailed, and is adept at working with both mill staff and state regulators. Recently, under tight time constraints and with many unknowns at the outset, Ms. Richert worked with regulators to successfully permit our new secondary effluent treatment facility. Without her involvement, we would not have been able to successfully complete the project and return to compliance on time. I highly recommend her for any environmental consulting work requiring professionalism, creativity and timeliness.”

Tom Moore, President, APC Paper Co, of New York, Inc. (100% recycled content paper manufacturer), Norfolk, New York

“We were extremely pleased with the quality and thoroughness of Richert Environmental’s work product. The Phase I report surpassed ASTM standards and gave us a document that will aid us in site management and development moving forward.”

Chris Jage, Land Protection Manager, Adirondack Land Trust, Keene, New York

“In a time sensitive situation, Richert Environmental Associates acted with urgency to complete the Professional Engineering Process Review that was required for Suez to progress into the next phase of the [wastewater treatment] project. The focus given to Suez was beyond what could have been expected. Thanks to a quick turnaround of the review, there were no schedule impacts to the project. Richert Environmental did a great job and I would highly recommend their services.”

Jason Marshall, Project Manager, Suez Treatment Solutions, Inc., Richmond, Virginia

“During the 20 years I have known and worked with Richert Environmental Associates, I have always been impressed with Betsy’s knowledge, capable network of technical professionals, attention to detail and strong project management skills.

I know I can count on Richert Environmental to be professional, creative, on-time and on-budget with the agreed upon scope.”

“Richert Environmental provides value added environmental consulting services. Betsy and her team improved our EHS program above and beyond regulatory compliance. This was evident when the Environmental Management System developed by Richert Environmental received a corporate best practice acknowledgment. I would not hesitate to recommend Richert Environmental for your environmental consulting needs.”

Scott Stoddard, Director for the Town of Plattsburgh, Water & Wastewater Department, Plattsburgh, New York; and former Manager of Environmental Health and Safety, Pfizer, Rouses Point, New York

“I’ve worked with Richert Environmental Associates for twenty years. At the General Motors Corporation, Betsy’s professionalism and knowledge of environmental regulations and technology made her a natural choice to develop our Title V Air Compliance System (MS Access) based on complex permit requirements. Her firm also demonstrated strong technical writing skills when updating our compliance documents. This positive experience led me to hire Richert Environmental again for support at SUNY Potsdam, where they played an integral role in the development of required regulatory documents. Richert Environmental is highly experienced, responsive and a WBE – which is a bonus when meeting small business set asides in New York.”

Susan H. Hauer, Assistant Director of Environmental Health & Safety, SUNY Potsdam, Potsdam, New York; and former Senior Environmental Engineer for the GM Corporation, Massena, New York

Her expertise in wastewater engineering coupled with her commitment to excellence and quick response helped us meet many ambitious client deadlines. She is reliable, fast and takes on challenging projects with focus and vigor. I am most grateful for her years of support to our team.”

“I first met Betsy Richert in 1996/1997 when I was attending Plattsburgh State University College as a non-traditional student majoring in Environmental Science and Geology. Betsy was my professor and was instrumental not only in teaching me the importance of due diligence and precision, she also gave me the tools to pursue my career with confidence and ability. As Senior Geologist for NYCO Minerals, Inc., I had the opportunity to collaborate with Richert Environmental Associates on a pilot project seeking to obtain funding for Warren County to implement the application of wollastonite tailings as a filter medium to remove phosophorus from wastewater effluent. Although the project was not funded because of financial constraints, Betsy exhibited a highly professional attitude in her scientific analysis and presentation of the project.”
