Wetland Services

As the primary focus of NEPA and Clean Water Act Section 404 permitting, wetlands must be regularly addressed during the project development process. ATM is staffed with a number of wetland experts experienced in addressing all of a project's wetland concerns, from initial delineation and verification to ensuring wetland avoidance, impact minimization, mitigation design and post-project monitoring. ATM's demonstrated ability to developing solid relationships with stakeholders and resource agencies further contributes to our success with wetland projects, including:

  • Delineation & Certification
  • Permitting Assistance
  • Mitigation Calculations & Design
  • Created Wetlands for Wastewater/Stormwater Treatment
  • Field Oversight & Monitoring
  • Mitigation Project Construction & Monitoring

Environmental Assessments

ATM engineers and scientists have worked with hotel/resort developers and public agencies to complete Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA), and to solve complex environmental and development issues. We have provided EIA services for clients in the Caribbean as well as throughout the United States, Latin America, Mexico and the Middle East. These EIAs provide comprehensive environmental assessments that meet both internationally recognized World Bank guidelines, as well as any additional country-specific requirements. ATM personnel can quickly and efficiently compile comprehensive site assessments for subsequent use in conceptual master planning, impact analysis and mitigation development. Our mitigation plans are designed to provide long-term, ecologically-balanced alternatives to avoid, minimize and monitor the potential impacts of a proposed development. Our capabilities include:

  • Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA)
  • Environmental Assessments (EA)
  • Environmental Management Plans (EMP)
  • Environmental Monitoring Plans
  • Mitigation Planning & Design
  • Water Quality Management
  • Mangrove, Reef & Seagrass Management Plan
