Natural Resources Review – Columbus Recreation and Parks Department – Columbus, Ohio

STONE is completing natural resources reviews for 91 Stewardship Areas surrounding the Griggs and Hoover Reservoirs. Federal and State-listed species coordination was completed with both ODNR and USFWS. Field reviews consist of mapping and documenting all water resources, federal and state listed species habitat, and existing infrastructure. Proposed access and dock locations were reviewed to determine and assess natural resources impacts. Recommendations to modify proposed access and dock locations were developed in order to avoid and/or minimize impacts to resources. Deliverables include a summary sheet of coordination data, field review data, and recommendations, as well as a field review figure for each site, illustrating the resources and infrastructure.

“Bayshore Environmental is very pleased to have engaged STONE to conduct a Phase II assessment of a contaminated commercial property.  The technical staff at STONE worked with us to develop an excellent program that entailed soil and groundwater sampling, testing and removal of drums of waste petroleum products, and the remediation of contaminated soil.  STONE conducted the work in a timely manner, produced an excellent report that was tailored to meet our needs, and all at a very reasonable cost.  We are pleased to endorse STONE and look forward to working with them in the future.”
