Mitigation & Compensation Planning

Mitigation and Compensation Planning

Habitat mitigation planning, design, permitting, and implementation are some of the most complex issues in the environmental field. They not only require knowledge of biology/ecology, hydrogeomorphology, horticulture, landscape architecture, and landscape contracting to design, but also a broad understanding of federal and state rules and regulations which ultimately dictate permitting/mitigation success. Often, approval of a project’s mitigation is as complicated as the project entitlement process. ECORP personnel are on the leading edge of mitigation planning and implementation, and are recognized as such by resource agencies such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency , and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. ECORP has developed a strong reputation in this field, and is sought out by private parties, conservation groups, and local governments for our mitigation planning experience.
