We promote an environment where people and projects succeed.

wetland delineation, waterbody survey, and functional assessment

Wetlands are important natural resources. Development projects involving wetlands may be subject to a number of local, state, and federal regulations.

Wetland

Merjent’s Wetland Services Team partners with clients to help them successfully develop and permit projects – from small-scale land development to large-scale, multi-state, linear construction – using the latest Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment, and data reporting and management technology solutions.

Our team has extensive experience assessing wetlands through desktop review and on-site determinations and delineations.

DESKTOP REVIEW

Desktop reviews are conducted at the start of any project and use aerial imagery and any other readily available data sources (including soils, hydrology, land cover, wetland inventory). Our team then develops permitting strategies appropriate for the size and scope of your project to avoid, minimize, and mitigate impacts.

WETLANDS DETERMINATION, DELINEATION, AND FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT

Depending on project size and level of effort, we either manage and coordinate field efforts or send individuals from our Wetland Services Team to conduct quick turnaround surveys, whether a determination, delineation, or functional assessment is required.

PERMIT APPLICATIONS

Following wetland data collection, our team works with federal, state, and local agencies, on behalf of our clients, to navigate the regulatory process and develop necessary permit applications.  We often engage in Section 401/404 consultations under the Clean Water Act.

WETLAND MONITORING AND MITIGATION

The permitting process may result in mitigation or post-construction wetland monitoring requirements. Our team can help manage, coordinate, and supply personnel to support such needs.
