Wetlands Permitting and Delineation
Project activities affecting wetlands and stream channels are highly regulated at the local, state, and federal level. We offer the full range of expertise needed to evaluate impacts and obtain regulatory permits for residential/commercial, stormwater, renewable energy, infrastructure management, and linear transportation projects.
Knowledge and Relationships Streamline Permitting
Our staff of more than 50 biologists and permitting specialists have expertise with the various laws and regulations governing natural resources. We understand the nuances of these complex regulations, including those relating to linear footage waivers and Nationwide Permit thresholds. We stay apprised of the latest developments and changes in environmental law and policy so that we can anticipate and mitigate regulatory issues more efficiently, helping you to successfully navigate the permitting process.
Our trusted agency relationships help quickly confirm wetland delineations with zero or minor modifications. Integrated mitigation planning by our in-house restoration team ensures continuity and cohesiveness from project development to completion.
