Site selection for mitigation projects is based on the level of impairment to the impacted site. Extensive permitting is then required by regulating bodies.
Stream Surveying and Geomorphic Assessment
Extensive mathematical considerations are taken to ensure that the work done will improve the quality of the system and not further contribute to its degradation.
Wetland and Stream Restoration Construction
U.S. streams and rivers have historically been widened and straitened. As river science has evolved the importance of recreating natural river geometry has shown to improve the ecosystem, reduce erosion, and properly route sediment through the system.
Successful Criteria Monitoring and Reporting
A stream's stability and biotic response are measured and reported annually to maintain mitigation properties and ensure that the project is successfully improving the water way.
