Natural Resource Damages

Mitigating ecological injuries through strategy, analysis, and remediation

Brownfields & Natural Resource Damage

Great Ecology works with states and trustees, industrial companies, developers, and municipalities on a variety of brownfield and corporate land issues, with a focus on Natural Resource Damage (NRD).

Great Ecology works on sites with natural resource components such as wetlands, river and coastal areas, or unique upland traits. Great Ecology provides ecological analysis and strategy, expert witness, compliance guidance, management plans, and financial models for redevelopment. We also provide NRD evaluation and ecological risk support to clients by helping them address potential or actual environmental damages and related compliance issues. We provide support for litigation, CERCLA, OPA, RCRA, and other legal drivers. Our subject matter experts are highly knowledgeable about  PFAS contamination, toxicological evaluations, and ecological restoration and design of contaminated sites.

Our staff is OSHA-certified to conduct work on hazardous sites.
