LEI was retained by the City of Grand Haven to develop an alternative wetland mitigation plan that would be used to facilitate the construction of wetland on Harbor Island. The alternative wetland mitigation plan prepared by LEI was approximately $200,000 less than original plans prepared by another consulting firm.
In addition to the development aspects of the project, LEI was also contracted to obtain regulatory approval of the wetland mitigation plan and construct the wetland. Regulatory approval of the alternative wetland mitigation plan has been obtained and construction of the wetland has commenced. LEI expects to have the project completed by the end of 2014.
