ERS staffs professional and certified wetland scientists who have conducted numerous investigations in over 20 states. We have conducted numerous vegetation surveys, rare plant inventories, wetland delineations, and riparian corridor assessments. ERS has completed comprehensive wetland studies for government and tribal agencies, industry and developers.
Our wetland scientists are experienced with mapping and characterizing wetlands, identifying functional values of wetlands, reviewing and documenting wetland losses, preparing wetland mitigation plans, and coordinating and participating in regulatory agency consultations for permit acquisition (both Nationwide and Individual 404).
ERS is often called upon to assess and inventory riparian habitat for restoration and monitoring programs. We use state of the art methods for evaluating wetlands and riparian areas, and sensitive and rare flora and fauna associated with these habitats. We have also conducted range and upland studies to assess vegetation species composition, distribution and density. In 2012 we developed and implemented a streamlined method for simultaneously collecting wetland determination data and delineating and mapping wetland boundaries and resource features. Integrating our sophisticated GPS and GIS mapping technology with an extensive, comprehensive and region specific, electronic wetland database, we are afforded the ability to identify, classify, delineate and map wetland resources using electronic media in a very professional, yet rapid manner. This cutting edge technology consists of a complete and comprehensive electronic wetland survey protocol, fully integrated with our GPS mapping system.
Our wetland survey and mapping system is designed to expedite the data collection and processing of Routine Wetland Determination forms, as prescribed in the new Regional Supplements to the US Army Corps of Engineers 1987 Wetlands Delineation Manual. This allows our scientists to reduce survey and report time by more than 50% by allowing them to digitally record wetland data in the field and eliminate handwritten notes and typed survey forms.
ERS wetland scientists are knowledgeable, experienced and fully trained to assist and guide clients through the entire wetland permit process with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
