Ecological Projects in Erie, PA
Let CT’s experts provide guidance on your next project and evaluate ecological components of any proposed project.
CT’s environmental science, water, and ecological experts continue to provide services to our government and private clients in Erie, Pennsylvania. Recent projects include Chapter 105 permitting for a local car dealership expansion, wetland delineation for a lumber yard, and gathered approved permits to construct the otter exhibit expansion at the Erie Zoo.
We offer our clients solutions and options for maintaining compliance with federal, state, and local regulations, as dictated by Sections 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344) and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act (33 U.S.C 403).
Any planned ground disturbance for the construction of a proposed project needs to be evaluated by a wetland professional to determine the presence or absence of surface waters and wetlands. In Pennsylvania, most activities require an authorization or a permit from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to encroach or obstruct surface waters and wetlands. Water obstructions and encroachments include activities such as bridges, stream channel work, utilities, and any fills which are located within, along, or across streams, wetlands, floodways, or bodies of water. CT’s Ecological Team will be able to obtain any permit required for proposed projects encroaching on any surface waters.
