Project Summary:

As part of several ongoing, confidential projects, Great Ecology is developing a Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) of numerous industrial sites that have been the source of ongoing contamination, spills, and injury to ecosystems. To evaluate natural resources injuries and specify the type and amount of restoration required to offset those injuries, Great Ecology is conducting both field and research-based evaluations of impacts to water, sediments, soil, and biotic resources. Through this NRDA, Great Ecology studies the effects of localized industrial impacts on fish, wildlife, surrounding habitats, and public use of those resources. The final NRDA Report will summarize these findings and present potential opportunities for habitation restoration both regionally and at the contaminated sites.
