West Side Wetland Mitigation Site Study

Compliance and monitoring at a wetland mitigation site west of Houston to comply with a Corps of Engineers Section 404 permit. The site has created wetlands to compensate for losses at other Houston airports.

Quadrant investigated site soils, vegetation and hydrology during periodic site monitoring. Quadrant also performed research on invasive species control at the site. Following this work, Quadrant delineated wetlands on the 25-acre Berm D area on the north end of the site and recommended additional wetland creation strategies. As a result of this assessment, Quadrant performed a feasibility study to evaluate ten options for creating 55 acres of new wetlands on the site. Quadrant performed hydrological and geological studies on each option and developed preliminary designs complete with cost estimates.
