Biological Assessment – Verdantas – Auglaize County, Ohio

The rehabilitation of the Interstate Highway I-75 bridges over the Auglaize River required a USFWS Biological Assessment (BA) to address impacts to federally endangered species. STONE prepared the USFWS Biological Assessment to assess the effects of the proposed action on federally-listed species, with a focus on freshwater mussels.

“STONE performed the ecological survey, environmental sites assessment, wetland delineation, waterway permit for 20 culverts throughout Monroe and Washington Counties. They also prepared the environmental document. We got praises from Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Office of Environmental Services (OES) about their performance. They were a pleasure to work with and were always very responsive.”
