Using the Army Corps of Engineers field manual, we analyze vegetation, soil, and hydrology criteria to determine the presence or absence of jurisdictional wetlands. We have completed applications for nationwide 404 permits for projects involving development, stream crossings, directional boring, and direct cut techniques, as well as individual permits.
