Normandeau Associates, Inc. Awarded Maine Department of Marine Resources Contract

Falmouth, Maine – 2009 –

The Maine Department of Marine Resources has awarded Normandeau Associates a contract to review the scientific basis for environmental windows (also known as time of year restrictions).  Dredging projects frequently must comply with environmental windows to protect sensitive marine resources, such as anadromous fish passage and spawning habitats. Normandeau Associates will review the scientific literature on dredging impacts with a focus on studies relevant to Maine waters.  Normandeau Associates will  determine whether environmental windows are effective, as well as to identify data gaps and measures to improve the permitting process.
