Wetland Delineation and Assessment



EcoGENESIS has extensive experience managing and conducting wetland delineations and assessments in Florida, Texas and Louisiana. Our staff and independent subcontractors have established expertise and experience in guiding clients when evaluating sites with wetland impact and mitigation issues and in performing wetland determinations and assessments. We have proven experience with “problem area” delineations such as improved pasture or altered sites, characterizing wetland ecosystems and habitat for impact assessments and mitigation offset, monitoring for water use or de-watering drawdown impacts, and designing and implementing Environmental Management Plans (EMP) in support of Water Use Permits. We have a broad range of experience with federal and state delineation and assessment methods used throughout the United States, as listed below:
