Challenging Addition Near Wetlands = No Problem!

Site Development Plan
Site Development Plan

Arthur Howland & Associates recently gained approvals for a challenging project in Sherman, Connecticut.  Our client wished to construct a garage in close proximity to a wetlands and watercourses.  With the help of landscape designer Rich Rosiello of Rosiello Designs we were able to obtain approvals to construct the garage to within 24 feet of the edge of wetlands.  We were able to demonstrate to the Commission through detailed Sedimentation and Erosion Control Plans and Construction Sequences that we would be able to prevent any short term or long term impacts to the wetlands.  The client will utilize gabion mattress blankets to provide for the long term stabilization of a steep watercourse bank which is currently eroding.

Our firm performed the following services for this project: Topographic Survey, AHydrology & Stormwater Management, Stormwater System Design, Sedimentation & Erosion Control Plans, Septic System Design, Driveway DesignLow Impact Development, Wetland Soil & Watercourse Delineation, Soil Investigation & Testing, Local, State, & Federal Land Use Permitting.
