Wetlands & Streams

Proud organizers of the annual Westerville Wetlands Workshop

The staff at MAD Scientist & Associates includes a Professional Wetland Scientist, trained wetland delineators, and ecologists and environmental scientists, three of whom have graduate degrees. The company offers a wide array of services relating to wetlands and streams, including:

  • Determination and delineation of Jurisdictional Waters and Isolated Wetlands
  • Wetland assessment using Ohio Rapid Assessment Methodology and other appropriate evaluation tools
  • Wetland permitting
  • Mitigation site selection and design services
  • Wetland and stream mitigation monitoring
  • Wetland restoration

Our experience with specialized wetland and stream studies includes:

  • Ohio EPA’s Vegetation Index of Biotic Integrity (VIBI)
  • Qualitative Habitat Evaluation Index (QHEI)
  • Headwater Habitat Evaluation Index (HHEI)
  • Primary Headwater Habitat biological assessment studies, including the Headwater Macroinvertebrate Field Evaluation Index (HMFEI) and related biological sampling of fish and salamander populations (which may be necessary to properly characterize the headwater class in situations where habitat-only evaluations prove insufficient).

The company is particularly proud of its efforts to educate citizens regarding the importance of these ecosystems to our collective quality of life. A prime example of these efforts is the annual “Westerville Wetlands Workshop,” jointly sponsored by MAD Scientist & Associates and the City of Westerville Parks and Recreation Department. This program is held in early May each year. An exact date, time and location of the next workshop will be posted on the News page of our web site several months in advance of the event.
