Federal Permits


ECORP frequently prepares applications for and negotiates the issuance of federal permits on our client’s behalf. We have extensive experience with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers through obtaining Clean Water Act, Section 404, Nationwide Permit authorizations, Letters of Permission, and Individual Permits. We also author Clean Water Act, Section 404(b)(1) alternatives analyses, as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Our staff are experienced with preparing Biological Assessments and Habitat Conservation Plans used to support the Federal Endangered Species Act Section 7 (Biological Opinion) and Section 10 (Take Authorization) consultations with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service. We also provide support to these agencies as they prepare the NEPA document associated with the permit issuance.
