Wetland Restoration & Construction
With the surge in severe storms over the past few years, All Habitat Services’ work on wetland construction, stabilization, and erosion prevention has increased. We are committed to developing the most cost-effective and innovative solution for your wetland habitat.
Over the years, human development has drained and altered many wetlands. These changes to wetlands both directly and indirectly alter the environment around them. When a wetland is damaged or destroyed, there are numerous losses incurred. Besides animal and plant habitat, wetlands also provide water-quality improvement through natural filtration, flood attenuation, aesthetics, and even recreational opportunities. Wetland restoration rehabilitates a degraded wetland or reestablishes a wetland that has been previously destroyed. Hydrologic investigation, plant material selection and buffer zone placement are all essential components our long-term wetland restoration.
Nowadays, restoring wetlands may not be enough to accommodate for the human need for development. Creation of a new wetland site typically for the purpose of treating wastewater, stormwater, drainage, or agricultural runoff may be beneficial. Construction of a wetland is more difficult than restoration and can only be done on a site where conditions exist that can sustain a wetland after creation. Site selection is examined based upon water source and quality and substrate augmentation and handling. All Habitat Services has years of experience building a variety of wetlands as well as ponds, lakes, and marshes.
