Development activity that impacts wetlands and waterways triggers strict enforcement under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, requiring a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers before dredged or fill material is discharged into U.S. waterways. To counterbalance the loss of aquatic functions and values of wetlands, streams, and other waterways, Section 404 also requires mitigation for wetland and stream development.

SWCA performs wetland and waterway delineations and successfully works with mitigation bankers on establishing mitigation banks and with other clients on permittee-responsible mitigation sites. We have strong relationships with oil and gas providers, developers, and municipal governments who are often the main clients of mitigation banks, helping us to connect their compliance needs with the most appropriate resources.

Our experience in wetland and stream functional assessments, mitigation banking, and ecosystem design and development gives you a single source of expertise for the mitigation banking process. In addition, we can provide construction oversight services to ensure compliance with permit conditions for your mitigation bank. SWCA can help you successfully navigate the mitigation process and obtain your permits as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
