Wetland Delineation and Permitting
KEMRON Environmental Services, Inc. (KEMRON) was retained to delineate wetlands on the Gwinnett County Regional Airport property. The county was proposing to construct a new taxiway and associated airport facilities. The project involved delineating all wetlands within the construction site, reconnaissance of additional wetlands on the airport property, performing a protected species survey and preparation of a report for the Airport Authority and the Gwinnett County Department of Transportation that included permitting options, preparation of the ecological and wetland sections of an Environmental Assessment that was submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration, and preparation and submittal of a federal wetland permit. In addition to preparing the reports, KEMRON attended several meetings with county officials, USACE personnel, and/or concerned citizens to explain the permitting process, anticipated impacts to the wetlands and streams, and the activities to minimize impacts to the environment.
