Wetland Assessment & Design
Wetlands are sensitive and productive ecosystems with special conservation priority at provincial and federal levels. We are experienced in wetland delineation and the application of provincial wetland classification systems as well as in the characterization of associated wildlife habitat values and environmental sensitivities. Natural and constructed wetlands are effective for maintaining water quality and are a common feature that is maintained or constructed to manage stormwater in urban areas or in effluent treatment in municipal or industrial applications. A `No Net Loss` policy favours avoidance for new developments or requires replacement wetlands be constructed where loss of wetland areas are unavoidable. We are experienced in wetland classification and in the design and construction of wetlands for stormwater management, municipal sewage and industrial effluent treatment.
