Ecosystem Restoration

NRP has advised numerous clients that seek to restore the physical and chemical integrity of a specific aquatic resource or ecological system. NRP utilizes its full team of ecologists, hydraulic engineers, and project managers to develop a scientifically sound approach to return damaged tracts of land to a highly functional and self-sustaining aquatic ecosystem. This includes habitat assessments, groundwater and surface water monitoring, the use of hydrodynamic models, and consideration of historic, current, and future ecological factors. NRP’s core services include wetland mitigation, marsh creation and stream restoration. 

 Members of our team have been directly involved with many large-scale coastal projects including hydrodynamic modeling and evaluation of the 2012 and 2017 State Master Plan, the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion Conceptual Design, and the Increase Atchafalaya Flows to Terrebonne Project, in addition to managing the installation and operation of the Coast-Wide Reference Monitoring System of Louisiana.
