In the context of development, AES scientists and engineers assess wetland physical and biological conditions to determine the needs of a sustainable system. Development plans are then integrated with natural system priorities.
Wetlands and buffers are conceived as functional elements of stormwater management that offer water quality and pollution reduction benefits, flood reduction, wildlife habitat, aesthetic, and maintenance cost benefits.
Our scientists assist with mitigation design, permitting, monitoring, and comprehensive consulting services. Contracting professionals put those plans into reality with innovative wetland construction techniques and cost-efficiencies.
Frequently, we incorporate wetlands into bioengineered infrastructure and recreational green space that contributes to sustainable urban green infrastructure.
