TesTech is one of the only consulting firms in the area that has an entire departmental staff devoted solely to servicing wetland and ecological issues, which is why TesTech has performed more mitigation projects than any other firm in Ohio. In addition, TesTech employs professionally trained staff in the delineation and wetland creation practices and standards utilized by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. TesTech conducts waters determinations in accordance with Army Corps of Engineers federal regulations and applicable state and local jurisdictions. Waters determinations include a site reconnaissance by a wetland specialist, wetland delineation, stream evaluation, and submission of information to the regulatory authorities. The determination results in a jurisdictional determination (JD) concurrence letter required for site development permitting. When necessary, TesTech also obtains water quality permits pursuant to the Clean Water Act of 1972 (e.g.. Section 401 and 404 water quality permits). Additionally, TesTech is experienced in performing wetland mitigation, including creation, restoration, and monitoring.
