Blair Wade's Summary

My ten years of environmental planning experience include Clean Water Act Section 404/401 permitting and project evaluation under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), primarily for the South Carolina Department of Transportation and Department of Defense.

I have additional experience in stream and wetland mitigation planning, which includes: feasibility studies, mitigation bank documentation, Interagency Review Team coordination, conceptual plans, watershed planning, and monitoring. This experience allows me to manage mitigation projects at every phase.

I graduated in May 2013 with a Masters of Environmental Management from the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University. My Master's Project evaluated stakeholders and perceptions of wetland restoration within the Waccamaw River watershed.
