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 conducted a field visit and found the headwaters of Rogers Creek to be located on the site. The location of the stream on the site significantly constricted the available developable space for the proposed use. Accordingly, EMH&T negotiated with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District (USACE) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) in order to relocate the stream around the developable portion of the site. EMH&T provided the design plans for the stream channel relocation, 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. The function and value of the relocated stream and restored upland buffer, along with the preservation of the higher quality stream segments on the site, served to improve and protect Plainfield’s water quality, while providing enough developable space to meet our client’s needs.
