Effective. Professional. Experienced.

The Torian project site was a mix of post-industrial landfills and excavations and many of the latter hosted seasonal wetlands. Working with historic aerial photographs, soils analyses, and hydrology modeling, we demonstrated that the wetlands were limited to a relatively discrete part of the site, ending several years of disputes over the wetland boundaries. As with other projects on the Bay margins, permitting was complex, requiring approvals from the US Army Corps of Engineers, US Fish and Wildlife Service, US National Marine Fisheries Service, SF Bay Conservation and Development Commission, and the CA Regional Water Quality Control Board.  This was one of the largest wetland fill permits issued by the San Francisco District of the Corps in the past two decades.
