The Saunders farm is a 500-acre site in rural Bedford County, Virginia (near Smith Mountain Lake). For this project, we worked closely with the developer and site civil design engineer to delineate on-site jurisdictional surface waters (wetlands and stream channels). In an additional phase of the project, ES&C also performed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA), to help identify potential sources of contamination. We then conducted a USACE jurisdictional determination effort, and evaluated the property for compensatory mitigation use.
