Wetland Delineation and determination

Wetland Delineation and determination

IVR Environmental Private Limited understands how the presence of wetlands can influence land-use decisions. Our Professional Wetland Scientists are trained to undertake two levels of wetlands identification. To obtain cost effective preliminary information early in a project, clients request a wetland determinationwhere we:
  • evaluate available maps of the property to initially determine if wetlands may be present
  • inspect the site to verify whether regulated wetlands are present
  • establish their general extent and location.
With this information IVR Environmental Private Limited then helps clients determine how the wetlands may affect their project and what state or federal permits may be required. Clients often use this information in early “go or no go” decisions.
IVR Environmental Private Limited staff has completed over 100 Wetlands Determination / Delineation according to Ušce standards including the following:
NPC Services, Inc. – Petro processors – Brook-lawn Facility
Rollins Environmental Services (LA), Inc. – Baton Rouge Facility
Jefferson Parish Landfill
Lewis Miller & Associates – Den-ham Springs development in partnership with Albert earth.

wetland delineation is a more detailed process that specifically defines the legal boundary of jurisdictional wetlands on a property. This boundary separates the regulated wetland from the upland areas on site. It is critical to identify the exact wetland boundary and acreage for permitting of impacts to wetlands or other regulated waters. It is often prudent to have a wetland delineation carried out to provide documentation that you have avoided impacts to wetlands.

To provide increased accuracy and efficiency on even the most complex delineation projects, IVR Environmental Private Limited uses GIS/GPS to integrate this data into geo-spatial decision-making tools.
