After ALL Consulting recently completed reclamation planning for clients under the New Mexico State Land Office (NMSLO) jurisdiction, the agency now points to ALL’s planning model as a guide. The planning strategy focuses on clear communication with key staff early and often to ensure the submittal of a complete plan with defined stage execution. As a result, ALL has earned the trust of NMSLO, which can add efficiency and expediency to the approval process.
ALL begins reclamation planning with a review of site-specific records, followed by a site characterization and delineation study inclusive of pedestrian and drone surveys. These investigations allow ALL to identify any potentially problematic areas as targets for soil sampling. We then draft and submit a reclamation plan to NMSLO for review and feedback. These plans typically include a timeline of site-specific remediation strategies, including production equipment removal, soil excavation, soil preparation and amendment, and site revegetation.
ALL can tailor planning solutions to address site conditions—from well abandonment to reclamation and seeding—while incorporating industry best practices during every project phase.
