Permitting & Agency Coordination
Permitting is often one of the last, but very crucial, steps towards beginning construction of a
project.  Whether it
is obtaining permits under the Federal Clean Water Act (CWA) or an
incidental take permit from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, AWE understands
the scientific, political, and regulatory dynamics that drive the permitting process.

With knowledgeable scientists and former employees of agencies such as the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service on staff, AWE possesses the unique ability to efficiently navigate the
regulatory process on behalf of our clients; negotiating fair permit conditions that are
backed by solid science.
