Environmental provides wetland regulatory guidance and permitting services that enable clients to successfully negotiate state and federal wetland regulations. We offer technical services and expert testimony for a wide range of wetland issues.
Our firm has over 25 years of experience working with state and federal agency staff for wetland related permit issues. Examples of permits that we regularly prepare and successfully obtain include:
- Federal Section 404 Individual Permit
- Federal Section 404 Nationwide Permits
- Section 401 Water Quality Certification (administered by the state)
- State Wetland Permits (NY, VT, MA)
- Local – Wetland and Watercourse Variances
We take an active role in client/agency liaison to facilitate an understanding of the applicant’s needs and the requirements of the regulatory agencies. Paramount to this effort is the understanding and familiarity with the wetland laws and regulations. Our experience allows us to craft comprehensive permit applications that include baseline natural resource data, alternatives analysis, impact assessment and mitigation.
Successfully obtaining permits often involves both strategy and negotiation. Our reputation as successful wetland consultants is based on a combination of our extensive experience with permit application preparation and successful negotiation with agency personnel.
