ENVIRONMENTAL DEPARTMENT

Our diverse environmental staff of biologists, resource specialists, GIS analysts, hydrologists and geologists allows us to carry projects through from conceptual design to project completion and monitoring.

Team members have an average of 26 years experience in Western Colorado performing biological surveys, environmental documentation, impact avoidance, mitigation design, and project liaison. We maintain close working relationships with Federal, State and local regulatory agencies including the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) and Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW).
