Natural Resources Inventories

Natural resources investigations are essential components in the design and implementation of successful projects. They set the stage for proper analysis of project alternatives, and provide important information to the decision makers throughout a project's planning, design, and construction stages. Owners today are faced with a myriad of regulatory constraints and design and construction options while seeking to avoid and minimize impacts to natural resources.  Making the wrong decisions based on inaccurate information can result in regulatory disputes, lost time due to permitting needs, additional mitigation requirements, and an increase in costs over the full project life cycle.  Performing accurate and comprehensive natural resource investigations in a timely, cost-effective manner is  a key component of successful projects. JMT's team of environmental scientists and specialists provide accurate and defensible resource inventories in accordance with established federal, state, and local regulatory guidelines, and for a wide variety of environmental, ecological, biological, and habitat contexts.
