Mitigation Design and Development
CEG’s approach to appropriate design and development of mitigation projects is based upon our scientists’ applied knowledge of ecological communities. Our scientists are experienced in the methods used by the federal regulatory and resource protection agencies to perform damage assessments and determine compensation for resources impacts such the Habitat Equivalency Analysis (HEA) method developed by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Each scientist has received formal training and is experienced in Florida’s statewide Uniform Mitigation Assessment Method (UMAM, Chapter 62-345 F.A.C.), specifically applying this training to marine, estuarine, mangrove, sandy beach and dune communities. Our primary goals are to provide cost-effective and ecologically appropriate mitigation to compensate for impacts to natural communities resulting from coastal development projects and design hypothesis-based monitoring programs to evaluate mitigation success.
Communication among the client, state, and federal agencies throughout the entire design and development process is key to timely and cost-effective planning and mitigation success.
