A mitigation site helps to reduce the damage caused to the environment due to development. Typically, a mitigation site will be a combination of preservation and restoration of wetlands, natural habitats, and streams in a watershed to ensure that there is a “no net loss” to the environment. Depending on the market area and supply of mitigation credits, providing compensatory mitigation for a project can sometimes cause project delays. Our experts’ wealth of knowledge and resources ensures your project’s progress stays on track no matter the environmental permitting challenges.
Davey offers custom mitigation solutions for developers and landowners. From mitigation bank credits to permittee responsible mitigation, our scientists, ecologists, and engineers are ready to help you find the right path to your goals.
Davey has extensive experience with all aspects of mitigation, including:
Purchasing mitigation banking credits seems straightforward in concept, but can be complicated by a number of factors, like availability and price.
We can leverage our network of mitigation bank partnerships to help developers purchase their credits at the best cost and successfully navigate the permitting process.
A mitigation site offsets the ecological loss of a development project by providing preservation and restoration of sensitive resources (e.g., wetlands and streams) in a different area, typically within the same watershed of the project. Wetlands and riparian zones provide flood control, help prevent erosion, and filter pollutants, which play an important role in maintaining good water quality. In addition to these benefits, wetlands and streams serve as valuable habitats for fish and wildlife, including many rare and sensitive species.
