Projects with the potential to impact water, land, or wildlife require an understanding of ecological conditions. Because ecosystems involve intricate, interconnected relationships with numerous variables, it can be challenging to understand the ways in which project activities may affect an ecosystem. Ecological project challenges involve a nuanced interplay between science, community, economics, and environmental regulations. Creative problem-solving and multi-stakeholder engagement is key to balancing project objectives with ecological goals and regulatory requirements.

Trihydro's ecological services professionals combine technical excellence with effective project management and regulatory expertise to provide high-quality service to clients across a diverse portfolio of ecological projects. Our ecologists, wildlife biologists, botanists, and wetland specialists have a practical understanding of the regulatory framework and how individual regulations are implemented on-the-ground. We work extensively with key regulations and have the applied technical knowledge to manage environmental issues effectively, while meeting our clients' business goals.

 
Wetland Delineation

WETLAND DELINEATION

Wetlands filter water, host wildlife, manage nutrient/sedimentation load, provide erosion and flooding control, and can help sequester carbon dioxide. Many people also enjoy wetlands as recreational opportunities. Because wetlands serve a critical ecological and social role, numerous federal, state, and local regulations are in place to protect these areas. As scientific understanding and communities' appreciation of wetlands has increased, our collective ability to protect wetlands is stronger than ever.

Ecological Regulatory Guidance
ECOLOGICAL REGULATORY GUIDANCE

Regulatory compliance is a critical component to successful project implementation. Common regulations related to environmental management work include the Clean Water Act (CWA), Clean Air Act (CAA), Endangered Species Act (ESA), Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), and Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (BGEPA). Additionally, considering and accounting for Executive Orders and Secretarial Orders can help streamline the regulatory process. Trihydro remains at the edge of regulatory policy and recommendations to ensure projects are completed seamlessly.

Biological Surveys

BIOLOGICAL SURVEYS

Biological surveys help document, model, and map vegetation and wildlife communities, shedding light on complex relationships within an ecosystem. Surveys are also increasingly being used to model and project spatio-temporal changes that are useful for management and conservation activities. Types of biological surveys that may be required for or beneficial to achieving project goals may include:

Ecosystem Management Services

ECOSYSTEM MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Ecosystem management is the practice of applying science-based approaches to holistically manage ecological processes while considering social, economic, and cultural needs. An ecosystem is the sum of all of its parts and no single piece can be assessed or addressed in isolation. Employing ecosystem management services to a project helps evaluate and manage ecosystems so they can continue to support human and environmental health.
