Environmental Mapping

Depicting environmental site conditions

Parametrix helps clients identify and estimate the nature and extent of historic and current environmental site conditions and problems. Our surveyors partner with our environmental planners, scientists, and GIS experts to depict and monitor site conditions. Services include wetland mapping, slide monitoring, drainage and elevation surveys, well location surveys, topographic surveys for reclamation, utility mapping, and forensic surveys for insurance claims.

Calistoga Setback Levee | Parametrix
Calistoga Setback Levee 
Orting, Washington
Client: City of Orting

This project constructed 1.6 miles of new setback levee along the Puyallup River. Parametrix field crews mapped the existing levee on both sides of the river, including location of existing improvements within the floodplain area. This data was combined with river data previously gathered by the Army Corps of Engineers. The location of the new levee was staked for project review and approval. We also assisted the City in acquiring property through boundary line adjustments of multiple tracts, many of which are within a Donation Land Claim.
