Wildlands Engineering, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a stream restoration design project from Mecklenburg County Storm Water Services. The project includes X linear feet of stream and floodplain enhancement and restoration on Torrence Creek and its tributaries in Huntersville, NC.
"We are excited to continue working with Mecklenburg County to improve water quality in the Mountain Island Lake watershed. "
Wildlands Engineering, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been awarded Full-Delivery Mitigation contracts from the North Carolina Ecosystem Enhancement Program (EEP) totaling over $11.6 M in value for restoring and enhancing approximately 100 acres of riparian buffer, 25,000 feet of stream, and 67 acres of riparian wetlands. This award follows up successful contracts of $6.1 M in 2010 for restoring and enhancing over 50 acres of riparian buffer, 16,800 feet of stream and 31 acres of wetlands.
"We are extremely pleased to continue our strong relationship with EEP and winning these contracts shows our dedication to bringing high quality, cost effective mitigation projects to the table," commented John Hutton, Vice President of Mitigation Services. The EEP, a division of the N. C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, restores and protects wetlands and waterways for future generations while offsetting unavoidable environmental damage from economic development. The EEP offers in-lieu fee mitigation programs designed to assist private and public entities with state and federal compensatory mitigation for streams, wetlands, riparian buffers, and nutrients.
"Working with landowners to develop a plan to restore and protect streams and wetlands on their property while enabling them to maintain their existing use of the land is what we love to do. I think this passion really helps us put together top notch projects," explains Robert Bugg, Land Acquisition Manager. To provide necessary credits, the EEP's Full-Delivery Program solicits bids from private firms and landowners for sites with streams and/or wetlands in need of restoration.
Employees of Wildlands Engineering, Inc. are excited to announce their purchase of the company from the former parent corporation, Wildlands, Inc. Wildlands Engineering was founded in 2007 and provides engineering, mitigation banking, and consulting services to a diverse group of clients, including private and public developers, government agencies, and environmental non-profits. Major services include:
- Stream, Wetland, and Habitat Mitigation
- Stream and Wetland Restoration
- Water Quality Management and Mitigation
- Watershed and Environmental Planning
"Working with our colleagues in California at Wildlands, Inc. was a great experience but the two companies were moving in different directions and the sale just made sense for both sides," commented Wildlands Engineering President, Shawn Wilkerson. "While the ownership has changed, our day-to-day project work and our relationships with clients, landowners, and regulators will continue unchanged." The Wildlands Engineering team of dedicated water resource engineers, hydrologists, ecologists, and GIS analysts possesses extensive experience in all aspects of stream and wetland restoration, watershed planning and assessment, and water quality best management practices.
"We believe the employee ownership will only enhance the work that we do and the organization that we build. Everyone is excited about the opportunity," Wilkerson continues. Wildlands Engineering is working with a marketing firm to create a new brand, logo, and website to set them apart from the former parent company. Wildlands Engineering intends on focusing on their core client base while working to establish a stronger foothold in the Virginia mitigation market. "We truly want to be the top ecosystem services firm in the Southeast, that's our goal," adds Wilkerson.
Wildlands Engineering is a fully licensed engineering firm specializing in water resources management and ecological restoration. The firm focuses its efforts on outstanding client service while delivering innovative ecological projects. Headquartered in Charlotte, NC, the firm also has offices in Raleigh, NC, and Charlottesville, VA.
