Agency Consultation

Agency Consultation

The agencies that are typically involved in a Fish Passage Project may include FERC, NOAA, USFWS, as well as various local and state agencies. Additional stakeholders may include Non-Government Organizations (NGO’s) such as American Rivers, Trout Unlimited, Atlantic Salmon Federation, Indian Tribes and numerous others. 

Our team is adept at facilitating negotiations with the various agencies and NGO’s, some of which may have conflicting interests, and helping our clients develop solutions to particular fish passage challenges in a cost effective and timely fashion. Our team includes regulatory, environmental and engineering staff that can systematically analyze various options and the effects on each element. Our team routinely identifies concerns and develops strategies relating too many of the following; fisheries management plans, state and federal resource goals, and NGO interests (e.g. Trout Unlimited, Indian Tribes).
