Navigating The Regulatory Process From Start To Finish

Proposed projects that could impact or affect coastal waters may be subject to regulation under the Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA). Types of projects that often require federal or state permit authorizations include marinas, private piers, bulkheads, boat ramps, dredging, and beach renourishment. CAMA Permit applications are reviewed by a host of state and federal agencies.

Davey Resource Group, Inc. works with our clients from the outset of project planning to avoid and minimize a project's environmental impacts and to formulate mitigative measures acceptable to review agencies. As part of the permitting process, our staff assembles information on area resources, various habitats, and project alternatives to assist clients in achieving their goals within the scope of regulatory limitations.

In addition, we work closely with other members of project development teams that can include land planners, engineers, and surveyors. Certain proposed projects can also require the preparation of Environmental Assessments or Environmental Impact Statements as required SEPA and NEPA documentation. These documents detail potential impacts to a wide range of environmental concerns including 404 and coastal wetlands, water quality, fisheries, cultural resources, endangered species, and many others. DRG routinely prepares these environmental documents incorporating a wide range of investigations necessary to evaluate the significance of any project impacts to the various facets of the environment.

In association with our Ecological Restoration Team, DRG provides planning and natural design solutions for increased coastal resiliency and flood attenuation through stream restoration, wetland and floodplain restoration, living shorelines, and beach and dune renourishment. Our team routinely works with communities and landowners in evaluating existing conditions and flood risks and subsequently developing effective and ecological-sustainable strategies for achieving coastal risk reduction.

404 Permits & 401 Certifications

Wetlands and other Waters of the U.S. are regulated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and/or the North Carolina Division of Water Quality (NC DWQ) under Sections 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act.

Impacts to wetlands or waters require approval by these agencies.

DRG is able to evaluate potential impacts that projects may have on wetlands or other waters and prepare the necessary federal and state permit applications. Our knowledge of the various wetland regulations, as well as our strong relationship with regulatory agencies, helps to facilitate the permit process for our clients.

We also offer wetland mitigation planning, implementation, and monitoring as required by the U.S. Corps of Engineers and other applicable agencies.
