The natural processes that occur in the coastal zone, combined with the activities of man, create the potential for a wide range of impacts to both the natural environment of the coast, as well as to any man-made features that are present. Similarly, construction and development in sensitive coastal areas can have severe impacts on coastal landforms, coastal processes and to coastal terrestrial and aquatic habitats. Staff and Associates of Christian J. Stewart Consulting offer a range of services that can assist with the examination of such impacts.

These include:

Flood and Erosion Damage Surveys and Analysis
Shoreline Protection Inventories and Impact Assessment
Waterfront Development Impact Assessment
Wildlife and Habitat Impact Assessment
Sea-Level Rise and Water Level Change Impact Analysis
Socio-Economic Impact Assessment
Recreation and Tourism Impact Assessment

Project Examples Include:
