Wetland

Wetlands have been reviled and cherished, drained and rebuilt – and protected by the Clean Water Act for more than four decades.

For more than three decades, AES consultants have helped our clients successfully navigate federal, state, regional, and local wetland regulations. For the benefit of natural systems and the communities that live with them.

We have created and restored functional wetlands for urban development sites, regional stormwater facilities, and restoration sites with thousands of acres of wetlands.

Pioneering design/build work in wetland mitigation banking in the 90s has led to dozens of projects that are now significant ecological areas and valued community amenities.

AES’ range of wetland services includes:

  • Site Assessment
  • Wetland Design + Planning
  • Wetland Mitigation + Banking
  • Hydrologic + Hydraulic Modeling
  • Permitting Assistance
  • Comprehensive Construction Services
  • Design/Build Services
  • Stormwater Planning

Approach

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.
