Environmental Impact Studies involve consultation with applicable agencies, documentation of existing conditions through field investigations, identification of the presence of any natural features, assessment of potential impacts and recommendations for mitigation measures.
Wildlife Habitat Assessments evaluate the relative habitat conditions available for wildlife within a specific site. Habitat conditions can be used to determine the presence, abundance, or productivity of terrestrial wildlife populations and species.
Aquatic and Fisheries
Aquatics and Fisheries Habitat Assessments evaluate the relative habitat conditions available for aquatic wildlife. Habitat conditions can be used to determine the presence, abundance, or productivity of aquatic wildlife populations and species.
Environmental Monitoring ensures that any potential adverse impacts of projects will be documented to determine the need and efficacy of mitigation measures.
Environmental monitoring includes surveying and sampling different environmental factors over the long-term to determine and identify any potential adverse impacts of projects and mitigation measures.
A Social Impact Assessment is a process used to inform of possible consequences of projects to social well-being.
This includes the identification and management the social impacts of industrial products, policies, plans.
Evaluation & Classification
Wetland evaluation and classification is used to help communities and others with land use planning. The evaluation process defines, identifies and measures the functions of values of wetlands.
This is based on an ecosystem values approach which focuses on groundwater, habitat for wildlife and species at risk, as well as productivity and biodiversity.
/ Tree Reports
Arborist Reports and accompanying tree studies can be used to implement measures to protect trees before, during and after any proposed development process.
CIPS can work closely with clients to conduct studies that inform effective tree preservation plans.
Water Impact Studies
Water Impact Studies are used to determine current quality of water and the potential impacts of proposed development.
