The LA Group's environmental group has successfully completed over 350 comprehensive environmental studies. This experience has afforded the firm a regional reputation as experts in regulatory compliance and permitting. Our environmental staff includes wetlands, terrestrial and aquatic ecologists who have extensive experience in surveying rare, threatened and/or endangered (rare) species and habitats. Staff members also develop mitigation strategies for minimizing or eliminating impacts on habitats.
Our staff members have performed routine, comprehensive and atypical delineations, have conducted numerous wetland functional analyses, and, as part of the permitting process, have addressed various mitigation issues. The LA Group has successfully processed the full range of federal and state wetland permits, including nationwide permits, nationwide permits requiring a pre-discharge notification (PDN), individual permits, and associated NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and Adirondack Park Agency permits. The LA Group also has coordinated the regulatory approval process to make sure that projects meet compliance requirements.
