ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES FOR SINGLE FAMILY DEVELOPMENT

Earth Tech Environmental provides a variety of services for single family properties in Lee and Collier County. We can assist you with the following:

  • Wetland Determinations

    Wetland determinations are conducted according to Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and US Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) criteria. We charge a flat fee per parcel for lots up to 3 acres.  Prices for larger parcels may vary.  Typical completion time is 1 to 2 weeks, but varies depending on current workload.

  • Florida Bonneted bat cavity surveys for ACOE permitting

    For clients already in the permitting process and the ACOE asks for a bonneted bat cavity survey. We charge a flat fee for parcels up to 3 acres. Prices for larger parcels may vary.  This survey is included in our ERP permitting price.

  • Environmental Resource Permitting (ERP)

    We charge a flat permitting fee per parcel for wetland impacts less than ½ acre.  Our pricing does not include the application fees to FDEP & ACOE.

    • You can increase the value of a wetland parcel by acquiring wetland impact permits.  The approved permits allow the buyers to see what can be impacted and all parties are aware of the mitigation cost.
    • Mitigation cost is established during the permit process and is based on wetland quality.
    • Mitigation is paid to an approved offsite mitigation bank.
    • Mitigation fees are not due until immediately prior to construction–the mitigation can be paid by the seller, buyer, or negotiated as part of a sale.
    • Most issued permits are valid for 5 years and eligible for extensions.
    • Approved permits can be easily transferred.

Our staff would be happy to provide additional information regarding the services we provide, including Spanish speaking clients.
