Mason & Associates, Inc. Wetland Consultants
Burleigh Estates Subdivision - Palmer, MA

Mason & Associates provided consulting services in response to an Administrative Consent Order for a sediment discharge from a residential construction site into off-site wetlands and waterways immediately upstream of the Roger Reed Salmon Hatchery. The firm coordinated extensively with the DEP, Division of Fish and Wildlife, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Town of Palmer, site contractor and others. Mason & Associates collected baseline data, performed site characterization and sediment analysis, and prepared the Pond and River Restoration Plan.

Mason & Associates participated in contractor solicitation and selection. During implementation of the Restoration Plan, the company provided continuous, on-site environmental compliance monitoring. Site work was efficiently conducted and closely monitored to ensure operation of the State fish hatchery was not adversely affected. Following sediment removal and site restoration, M & A prepared the required Pond and River Restoration Post-Construction Report. DEP accepted the Report and found that restoration work was completed in substantial compliance with the Order.
