Natural Resources Mitigation

The rule is to first avoid, then minimize, and finally mitigate for impacts when impacts are unavoidable. BergerABAM's natural resources staff works with the client, agencies, and project team to devise on- or off-site mitigation to compensate for impacts. Staff proposes plans to mitigate for planned impacts by creating and/or enhancing wetland, improving riparian and fish habitat functions to preserve functions and values, and vegetating the site with the appropriate plant communities. If the development planned for a location could affect wetlands, BergerABAM often works with the client to site the project to have the least possible effect. During project construction, BergerABAM monitors the work to ensure the effects on wetlands are minimized and collects baseline, as-built, and annual monitoring data. Staff include qualified ecologists, botanists, and landscape designers.
