LandSolutions provides services to meet all of your pre-development needs. Pre-development work can range from Phase I ESA for acquisition, to wildlife or vegetation surveys, or wetland identification and delineation. Our experienced professionals are available to ensure that your project starts on the right foot.
During Pre-site Assessments we provide background site information (topography, hydrology, vegetation, soils and sensitive wildlife/habitats). We will investigate and highlight environmental sensitivities, such as proximity to water bodies, weeds, nesting sites, mineral licks, soil stability etc. We will apply applicable regulatory standards and guidelines to identify site specific issues and non-compliance scenarios while providing timely solutions and recommendations. Our team will provide information to ensure construction decisions are made that maximize efficiencies and avoid environmental impacts. We are focused on achieving a high-standard of bio-physical information and reporting to facilitate post-abandonment reclamation planning.
By completing desktop reviews of applicable regulatory databases and documents (LAT reports, GLIMPS, FWMIS, ACiMS, and HRV) we will determine if further investigation is needed. We can provide filed assessments using applicable survey protocols as per the ESRD's Sensitive Species Inventory Guidelines and AER/EAP Integrated Standards and Guidelines. Our team will identify species at risk and/or associated niche habitat sites all while providing client consultation and reporting.
Our team will classify, delineate and conduct vegetative species counts in water bodies and wetlands. We will provide recommendations in regard to site construction, minimizing impacts and maintaining natural drainage. If necessary we can provide guidance and consultation on the Water Act.
