Wetland Determination and Wetland Delineation

What is a “wetland?” Wetlands may not always be apparent just by looking at them. Before any land development progress can be made on your property, this question must be answered! Addressing the presence of wetland areas with Martenson & Eisele’s wetland delineation services allows you to take appropriate action, save valuable time in the development schedule, and avoids costly redesign delays.


Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments

The potential for hazardous-waste contamination liability hovers ominously over every party involved in the transference of any agricultural, commercial or industrial property. A typical Phase I Environmental Site Assessment includes review of records, site reconnaissance, interviews with owners, occupants, and local government officials, and a comprehensive report.


Should a contamination issue be identified during a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, additional testing will be recommended. Phase II Environmental Site Assessment testing involves the testing of suspect areas to confirm or deny the presence of hazardous substances. If contamination is indeed present, a detailed testing program (Phase III ESA) outlines the extent of the contamination and provides necessary data to compile an efficient and cost-effective remediation plan for the site.


Waterway and Wetland Permit Applications

Wetland impact is often unavoidable during the construction of a project. Martenson & Eisele, Inc. can help you with your general or individual wetland permit. We can also assist in permitting pond design and creation, as well as alteration to existing ponds.


Enviromental Transaction Screens

Environmental Transaction Screens provide a modified environmental assessment and level of assurance during commercial real estate transactions for properties that do not have a history or any indications of environmental problems. These screens do not provide coverage for the innocent landowner defense.


Pond Design

From enhancing the beauty and aesthetic of your property to performing the required functions of a mandatory storm water pond, Martenson & Eisele’s pond design services are here to improve the appearance, function, and health of your ponds! From native aquatic plantings to innovative pond design, our staff listens to your concerns to create custom solutions to help you achieve your goals.
