WETLAND RESOURCE SERVICES






WETLAND RESOURCE SERVICES
Our staff routinely investigate and delineate wetlands, identify and quantify wetland functions and values, and determine the context of each wetland to understand its unique functions such as history, size, location, vegetation, wildlife composition, and adjacent land uses.

While we always design projects to eliminate or minimize wetland impacts, we can also assist clients with developing mitigation plans and monitoring mitigation to provide appropriate compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts.

Through experience preparing numerous wetland investigations, delineations, mitigation plans, we frequently negotiate and coordinate with the appropriate agencies (e.g., U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) to minimize the effort required to develop appropriate mitigation to compensate for unavoidable wetland impacts from project construction.
