Wetlands

Protecting Wetlands and Watersheds

RES restores and enhances wetlands where they used to occur, conserves and preserves existing wetlands, and connects adjacent wetland areas to create larger, more ecologically rich ecosystems. Through restoration, RES improves the function and values of wetland ecosystems as they relate to water filtration, flood and erosion control, and biodiversity. RES helps permittees obtain required wetland offsets for their projects permitted under section 404 of the Clean Water Act.

Our Work

Wetlands are subject to many forms of erosion, pollution, and contamination that can dramatically damage surrounding habitats. The dedicated organizations that choose to combat these negative effects have improved thousands of acres of wetlands utilizing the comprehensive protection, remediation, and consultative services of RES.

Many parts of Louisiana are losing wetlands at an alarming rate of 3.9 square miles per year. In Louisiana, RES is a leader in supply of wetland offsets. We deliver offset solutions for large project sites and linear projects, including those crossing regulatory jurisdictions. RES works closely with landowners to supply ecological offsets to permittees operating in and transporting from the Haynesville Shale to waiting markets. From wetland mitigation banks to custom, turnkey sites, our proactive approach helps permittees reserve project mitigation before permitting, leading to timely permits, reduced operational risk and lower mitigation costs.

Notable Accomplishments

  • Restored over 16,500 wetland acres
  • Provided ecological offset solutions for Louisiana’s most active watersheds
  • Created the nursery at Pointe Aux Chenes, the Gulf Coast’s largest commercial provider of restorative, native vegetation, grasses and plants used for marsh, dune and barrier island restoration
  • Supplied over 70% of wetland offsets supporting Haynesville Shale development
  • Delivered offset solutions for complex projects throughout all Louisiana wetland habitats
