Edwards-Pitman Environmental uses the latest scientific equipment to custom-design each aquatic survey to meet your project’s needs.
We are passionate stewards of aquatic ecosystems and have invested heavily in our aquatic ecology and survey services. Our staff of highly qualified aquatic ecologists conduct surveys for freshwater mussels, fish, crayfish, aquatic snails, and aquatic turtles; evaluate project impacts; assess aquatic habitats; perform mussel relocations; and benthic macroinvertebrate and fish bioassessments.
The major objective of most fish and aquatic mussel surveys for our clients is to determine the presence or absence of federal or state-protected aquatic species in streams, and the presence of suitable habitats for protected aquatic species. Edwards-Pitman Environmental has conducted numerous surveys for state and federally-protected species in the Altamaha, Chattahoochee, Coosa, Flint, Ochlockonee, Ocmulgee, Oconee, Ogeechee, Satilla, Savannah, St. Mary’s, Suwannee, Tallapoosa, and Tennessee River basins in Georgia, and within the slate belt of South Carolina.
Our aquatic survey services include the following:
- Habitat assessments
- Fish and invertebrate assessments
- Benthic macroinvertebrate and fish bioassessments
- Shoreline characterization
- Endangered Species Act (ESA) analysis and compliance
