Understanding the Environment, Accounting for Regulations
Watershed scientists use the best scientific methods to assess wetlands, streams, wildlife, fish, and trees and provide accurate documentation to avoid unnecessary review delays. When mitigation for buffer impacts is required, we can help design innovative and attractive mitigation plans that augment the property and meet regulatory requirements, from permit submittal through construction.
Watershed also leads the field in non-traditional methods of mitigation, including mitigation banking, in-lieu fee programs, and restoration credits.
