- We install monitoring wells in dikes, brownfield sites and other locations to capture data on groundwater and potential contamination.
- Our understanding of fluvial geomorphology, the interactions between streams and soil, is fundamental to our river projects.
- We use computer modeling tools such as AERMOD to integrate source pollutant emission rates, meteorological data, and terrain data and estimate pollutant concentrations at downwind receptor locations.
- Our environmental investigations are the foundation for much of our remediation work, and the first step toward cleaning up contaminated soil.
Our biologists and ecologists help clients navigate regulatory and permitting challenges related to plant and animal habitat. Development and transportation projects sometimes require environmental offsets like the creation of new wetlands to make up for losses from new infrastructure. Our coastal and marine ecologists specialize in everything from protective grasses to shellfish and perform the assessments and planning you need to understand the natural resources at a project site. Our fish biologists help us rehabilitate river ecosystems and protect sensitive species. Often, these projects involve redesigning stream crossings like culverts and bridges that have blocked fish from accessing upstream spawning and rearing habitat. Biology also plays a role in many of our environmental restoration projects, where we rebuild habitat to support the sustainable growth of important species.
