The wetlands regulatory programs administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), state (Water Management Districts), and local agencies have become complicated and largely esoteric.
 
ERS has a full understanding of agency processes and performs the following services:
  • Delineate wetlands pursuant to the methodologies prescribed by USACE, and various state and local agencies; for example, the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD)
  • Obtain agency verification of flagged wetland boundaries
  • Prepare, submit, and facilitate processing of various permit applications, including Jurisdictional Determinations (JDs) and Environmental Resource Permits (ERPs)
  • Prepare "significant nexus" information and submit it to USACE, pursuant USACE policies resulting from the 2006 U.S. Supreme Court Rapanos decisions
  • Community vegetative analysis pursuant to Uniform Mitigation Assessment Methods (UMAM) and Wetland Rapid Assessment Procedures (WRAP)
  • Manage agency negotiations for wetland impact assessment and compensatory requirements
  • Provide mitigation plan development and design services
  • Supervise and coordinate plant material installation for mitigation projects
  • Conduct mitigation project monitoring and reporting services
