SWCA’s aquatic biology consultants focus not only on water itself, but the fish, aquatic insects, invertebrates, and algae that live within it. 

Our aquatic biologists use both scientific and technical tools to conduct thorough investigations of aquatic species and habitats. This information is then used to develop comprehensive management plans that range from riparian enhancement and restoration to the recovery of threatened, endangered, and sensitive species. Our mitigation planning expertise helps speed the process for clients to obtain necessary permits, and our services can support compliance activity in several different areas, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Endangered Species Act (ESA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), and the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).
