King & MacGregor Environmental, Inc. (KME) was contracted by Wade Trim consulting engineers to provide ecological permitting services for the Henry Ford Health System Hospital expansion project in West Bloomfield Township, Michigan. The proposed hospital expansion also impacted the surrounding wetlands and an intermittent stream. KME prepared compensatory stream relocation and mitigation plans.
KME performed wetland and woodland delineation, GPS location of both wetlands and woodlands, and negotiation with Township officials and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) staff. Both the Woodland and Wetland permit applications were approved by West Bloomfield Township. The wetland and stream relocation permit application was also approved by the MDEQ.
