EnSafe routinely assists local/state government, industry, and private developers with mitigation requirements for corrective actions to incidental or unintended stream and wetland impacts. Our capabilities include corrective action design, earthwork, tree planting, and annual monitoring.
EnSafe’s assistance to Tennessee Department of General Services has spanned the state with environmental services in 80 counties for 19 agencies, including more than 60 separate State Building Commission projects and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments.
EnSafe was solely responsible for the design and construction of the 235-acre Harpeth Wetland Bank in Middle Tennessee, at the time one of the largest wetland creation projects in the southeast U.S.
EnSafe has completed the first Phase of the West Tennessee Wetlands Mitigation Bank in Bartlett, Tennessee, just north of Memphis. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, in coordination with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation and Interagency Review Team, has approved the final Mitigation Banking Instrument (MBI) approving the sale of wetlands credits. The bank is 267-acres of converted farmland in the Loosahatchie River floodplain.
EnSafe evaluated ecological resources for 47 linear roadway projects for the Tennessee Department of Transportation, identifying perennial and intermittent streams, wet weather conveyances, wetlands, springs, ponds, caves, etc. that could be impacted by road construction within the proposed rights-of-way.
EnSafe started work three days after notification and finished in four months to rebuild nearly 1,400 feet of stream bank and achieve emergency stream restoration. EnSafe won the American Council of Engineering Companies' Engineering Excellence Honor Award for this project.
