- Key Injuries: Multiple
- Watershed: Multiple
As part of several ongoing confidential projects, Great Ecology is developing Natural Resource Damages Assessments (NRDAs) for numerous industrial sites (located in several watersheds) 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 these NRDAs, Great Ecology is studying the effects of localized injuries to fish, wildlife, surrounding habitats, and public use of those resources. The final NRDA reports summarize these findings and present potential opportunities for habitat restoration both regionally, and in some cases, at the contaminated sites.
