NES Saves You Time & Money

James Havel and Kyle Bretl are Assured Wetland Delineators with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR).  Wetland delineations conducted by Mr. Havel and Mr. Bretl do not require concurrence by the WDNR.

NES is the only firm in Wisconsin with multiple Assured Wetland Delineators.

Benefits to our clients include:

  • Time saving through elimination of 60 day WDNR concurrence review period
  • Cost saving through elimination of $300/20 acre concurrence review fee
  • High level of confidence of wetland boundary accuracy for planning purposes

Delineators are assured based on their level of education, training, experience and work quality.  Delineators that become assured are required to abide by the program’s code of ethics, submit their wetland reports to the WDNR for a random review and meet the program’s continuing education requirements.

NES Can Help Navigate the Permitting Process

In addition to our ability to make the wetland delineation process faster and less expensive, we can also assist you in permitting your project.  NES can perform all the necessary requirements for general and individual permit applications including Functional Values Assessments, Alternatives Analyses and Mitigation.

NES can assist in the development of wetland mitigation banks.  From siting the project to monitoring the results, we can work with you through the entire process, ensuring a successful and sustainable mitigation bank.
