Site Reconnaissance

A Site Reconnaissance identifies items that may limit or restrict development or other proposed land uses on the Site by evaluating information collected from a desktop reconnaissance and field investigation.  The desktop reconnaissance includes review of topographic, soils, floodplains and wetland maps, as well as aerial photography and other accessible Site information to determine the presence of potential jurisdictional wetlands and/or waters on the Site.  Other items that may exist on your property that could restrict your land use plans may be:  power lines, national or state forests, springs, karst features, endangered or threatened species, etc. A field investigation checks the accuracy of the existing information, and makes a determination of presence or absence of regulated wetlands or jurisdictional waters.  Results of the Site Reconnaissance will be summarized, including permits and mitigation that may be required.  Every Site Reconnaissance is different because every Site is different. We will evaluate your Site and provide you with the information you need to make the right decisions for your property and your business.  

You may need a Site Reconnaissance if you are planning any construction, development or landuse changes on your property, or planning to purchase property.  A Site Reconnaissance will summarize potential restrictions to development so you can identify the best areas on your property for development or construction.
