WRW has extensive water (surface and ground water) sampling and monitoring experience (adhering to both WY-DEQ and WOGCC sampling protocols), vegetation sampling and monitoring, and permit compliance.

We have extensive experience documenting vegetation community characteristics, reclamation, and monitoring of disturbed lands associated with oil and gas development; and have been conducting clearance monitoring required by Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WYDEQ) for coverage under the large construction general permit (LCGP) for Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) for over a decade.

We developed monitoring and vegetation sampling protocols in coordination with WYDEQ’s Water Quality Division’s (WQD) Wyoming Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WYPDES) program to expedite the clearance, and termination, of SWPPP monitoring requirements for entire permits, and for segments or areas which have attained the necessary reclamation threshold (“finally stabilized”).
