About US

NRP is a specialized wetland and water resources consulting group providing engineering and regulatory expertise to municipalities, industrial interests and developers within south Louisiana. Engineering services include hydrodynamic modeling and analysis of estuarine, coastal, and stormwater systems. Our regulatory expertise includes conducting all surveys and site studies required to identify jurisdictional wetlands and secure Clean Water Act, Section 404/10 permits and Coastal Use Permits. We have assisted landowners and corporate entities in establishing over 20 wetland mitigation banks within the US Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District (USACE).

With an integrated approach to water resources and wetland management, NRP benefits clients by providing a single, full-service consultant that can engineer the project and minimize delays associated with regulatory permitting, especially when securing Section 404/10 permits from the USACE.
