Project One

Plainfield, Indiana

EMH&T worked for VanTrust Real Estate (formerly Caymus Real Estate) in order to provide delineation and permitting services for a proposed commercial warehouse project in Plainfield, Indiana. EMH&T negotiated with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District (USACE) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) to relocate a stream on the site in order to obtain sufficient developable space for the proposed use. EMH&T provided the design plans for the relocated stream channel including a detailed planting plan with a diverse assemblage of trees, shrubs, and live stakes within the stream corridor to help to offset the impacts. EMH&T was subsequently contracted to perform mitigation monitoring in accordance with the issued permits. Up to five years of monitoring was required by the agencies; however, if the project was found to full meet the performance goals in Year 2 and 3 of monitoring, then no additional monitoring would be required. EMH&T completed the first three years of monitoring and was successful in demonstrating the project’s success in the first three years, such that the additional two years of monitoring was waived by USACE and IDEM in 2016.
