Wetland Delineation and Permitting

The existence of wetlands or waters on a property can potentially reduce the acreage available for future development. Therefore, wetlands identification is most often conducted as part of Phase I site assessments, or as a preliminary action to development. Wetland boundaries are delineated by making observations of and/or sampling the physical and biological characteristics on a property. In many cases, site development can be designed around existing waters and wetland areas or development including some wetland impacts can proceed after a wetlands permit has been obtained from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The ECA staff consists of professional biologists, geologists, and engineers with experience in performing wetland delineations, mitigation planning, and negotiating permit conditions. ECA wetland scientists have completed the US Army Corps of Engineers training program for wetland determinations and delineation. ECA performs all wetland delineations in accordance with the US Army Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual and with state delineation methods where applicable.
