Other features constructed in these projects include construction of flood-prone riparian areas, log and rock vane in-channel structures, wetland features and storm water detention.
ESI has a unique understanding and is experienced in construction adjacent to and within jurisdictional waters. Our construction specialty is working within jurisdictional areas.
We have worked with ESI for seven years on various projects including watershed restoration planning, contract work for various stream restoration and improvements, and to establish a stream mitigation bank in Chicopee Woods. I heartily recommend his services. We have found Environmental Services to be exceptional in their professional dealings with agencies, flexible, conscientious and diligent in their client services, and we believe they do the very best on-the-ground work in the field.
