Wetlands are highly diverse communities, providing habitat for many threatened or endangered species as well as other ecosystem services. Due to the historic loss of large amounts of wetland area, several state and federal regulations have been enacted to protect and recover existing wetlands form further degradation. As such, the presence of wetlands should be a consideration in real estate transactions.

BLDI provides wetland determination and characterization services including, but not limited to, reviews of state and federal wetland mapping sources, site visits, and critical area studies. Limited wetland characterization may be included as a non-scope consideration in Phase I Environmental Site Assessments if requested.

Please contact Leslie DeBoer, EP at ldeboer@bldi.com or 616.459.3737 with any questions regarding the wetland determination process.
