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 several wetland experts experienced in addressing a project’s wetland concerns, from initial delineation and verification to ensuring wetland avoidance, impact minimization, mitigation design, and post-project monitoring. Our demonstrated ability to develop solid relationships with stakeholders and resource agencies further contributes to our success with wetland projects, including:

  • 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 developers and public agencies world-wide to complete Environmental Assessments (EA) 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, and any additional country-specific requirements.
