Princeton Hydro provides environmental services to regional and municipal planning entities in the form of natural resource and environmental inventories, and river corridor studies including watershed conservation plans. In every study, it is critical not only to accurately identify and map resources and sensitive environmental features, but also to make sense of how the public interfaces with them. Because the focus of planning is often on watershed management and the protection of natural resources, our planners collaborate closely with our scientists and engineers to ensure that recommendations are consistent with sound planning strategies and all applicable regulations.
Public outreach and education is another area of service offered through our environmental planning group. Our designers develop interpretive nature trails, signage and kiosks. These elements help make the scientific and engineering components of the project more accessible at the user level, increasing the public's understanding and awareness of the restoration and management goals of our projects.
