Anchor QEA has the specialized expertise to identify, design and implement compensatory mitigation actions for unavoidable project impacts. Anchor QEA provides expertise for all phases of the mitigation process, starting with baseline habitat assessments including marine, estuarine, and freshwater habitat characterization along with wetland reconnaissance and delineation. We understand how to accurately document avoidance and minimization measures, minimize potential temporary construction and permanent impacts through design, and minimize risks of habitat degradation during construction throughout the life of a project. We collaborate with our clients and regulatory agency staff from initial site selection through permitting of the mitigation plan to ensure all aspects of the plan meet regulatory requirements. Our work on mitigation projects often ends with post-construction monitoring and, in some cases, developing contingency actions to improve project success or make adjustments to unanticipated conditions.
