Engineers are prominent members of application teams seeking permission to begin construction projects. When pursuing a Wetlands Permit, many common issues arise across the United States. Some approaches and techniques are more successful than others.
This course is written by a PE who developed his own subdivision properties for years, representing himself before Boards and New England Wetland Commissions as both the design professional civil engineer of record and the developer land owner. In recent years, he has received wetlands permits for geothermal and other construction jobs. Winning strategies are shared with Engineers who may be approaching a Board or Commission for the first time, or with Engineers who seek better knowledge on proper terminology, what will occur at a meeting, or which engineering design methods are effective.
The author’s objective is to familiarize you with meeting procedure, and for you to have more efficient approvals the first time, without having to redesign and resubmit plans, in accordance with regulations that control the process.
