The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires federal agencies to consider the environmental impacts from their actions and to prepare detailed assessments of environmental impacts and alternatives to their actions. Perennial has extensive experience working with federal agencies to prepare detailed Environmental Assessments (EA) and Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) in compliance with NEPA for project-specific impacts on environmental resources and the development of alternative analyses.
Perennial’s experience with wetland and waterbody delineations ranges from small developments to large transportation and utility projects. Delineations are performed by our team of experienced biologists through an evaluation of vegetation, soils, and hydrology according to the methodology prescribed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and/or state environmental agencies. Through use of sub-meter GPS units, we collect data along wetland and waterbody boundaries during field surveys, allowing us to efficiently produce accurate mapping and impact calculations.
The Perennial Environmental team functions as a trusted advisor in matters of threatened and endangered (T&E) species habitat assessments and surveys for federally- and state-listed species, including protected species of concern. We aid in informal and formal consultations with the applicable regional U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and/or regional National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) offices, and state agencies for impacts to federal- and state-listed species, including the development of mitigation plans.
