Threatened and Endangered Species can significantly affect various aspects of a project by limiting project areas, delaying project timelines and even halting certain project activities from occurring. Threatened and Endangered Species studies can include initial screenings, onsite habitat assessments, presence/absence surveys or site-specific studies and can even include relocation efforts or United States Fish and Wildlife Service Section 10 permits.
Threatened and Endangered Species studies are required by Federal, State, City and even County regulatory permitting processes. A brief list of typical permitting actions which require Threatened and Endangered Species evaluations are presented below:
- Construction and other development activities
- Section 404 Permits
- Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permits (TPDES)
- Sand and Gravel Permits
- Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) and Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR)
