ESE recently conducted a Phase I ESA and Water Resources Evaluation on 3,865 acres for a proposed large-scale solar installation in South Texas. Numerous wetlands were identified and delineated within the site, and a portion of those features had the potential to be considered jurisdictional by the USACE. Since the USACE makes the final determination on the location of waterbody and wetland boundaries and their jurisdictional status, the client has opted to obtain an official jurisdictional determination (JD) from the USACE. ESE is assisting the client in the process and will submit the report to the USACE Galveston District Office, along with a JD request form and, if appropriate, a pre-construction notification / permit application.
