Stream, Lake, and Pond Biological and Habitat Assessments
Measure Ecological Health and Sustainability of Aquatic Ecosystems
Being a North Carolina Division of Water Resources and a Society for Freshwater Science certified lab ensures that you can trust our field collection, laboratory procedure, and data generation methodologies. Biological assessments and bio-monitoring are used to ensure that any land clearing, construction, and stream restoration projects do not negatively impact aquatic ecosystems. These assessments are also used to gather baseline biological data before restoration projects. After restoration, bio-monitoring can be used to prove biological uplift, showing that a project was successful.
Stream Origin Calls and Delineations
Discover where a Stream Originates & Determine if it is Perennial, Intermittent or Ephemeral
Determining where a stream begins and whether a stream is ephemeral, intermittent or perennial subjects it to various riparian buffer rules and WOTUS protections. By using a variety of state-approved indicators, we are able to determine if the stream in question is protected from development and subject to federal jurisdictional protection.
Chemical Sampling and Site Monitoring
Collect Water Chemistry Data at Recreational Sites or Any Area of Concern
If you wish to measure or monitor the chemical environments of a pond, lake, or stream, Reece Environmental Consulting can provide a variety of chemical testing and services. These include water temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, total suspended solids, nutrient loads, conductivity, fecal coliform, E. coli and more. Water samples can be collected and analyzed after a spill or other accident to measure the impact on the water quality and aquatic ecosystem. This is also a great way to monitor the water chemistry at swimming, fishing, or other recreational sites.
Environmental Training and Education
Educate Staff and Personnel in Various State Biological Assessments & Procedures
We create and tailor a variety of training programs and protocols to ensure you and your staff are in compliance with your state's protocols and procedures. Whether it's training your state's biological assessment protocols, how to accurately delineate streams while being backed and confirmed by undeniable biological evidence, or giving your staff a crash course in benthic macroinvertebrate ecology to understand water quality and biological indicators, we provide confidence in your staff and assessments, improving your reputation and conveying professionalism to your clients.
