Chris Allan Presents on Wetlands to Bar Association
Chris Allan, LANDTECH’s resident Professional Wetland Scientist and Soil Scientist, recently participated in a presentation at the Fairfield County Bar Association’s Environmental Law Seminar entitled “Inland Wetlands: The Science, The Law and The Agency.”
Chris was joined by Alexis Cherichetti, the City of Norwalk’s Senior Environmental Officer and Attorney Elizabeth Suchy, Esq, of Sandak, Hennessey & Greco, LLP. Chris’s presentation was geared toward providing the audience with an understanding of wetland science including how wetlands are defined, types of wetlands and their importance, the functions wetlands provide, and why they are regulated.
The nuts and bolts of applying for an inland wetlands permit and other regulatory aspects were covered in detail by Ms. Cherichetti and Ms. Suchy.
