Linear developments present unique environmental management problems, due to construction constraints that favor straight alignments.
Achieving a balance between potential environmental or human impacts and constructability is a key challenge for these projects and avoidance of sensitive resources is not always possible. Selection of an alignment that will minimize the potential impacts to watercourses, fish and wildlife habitat, and cultural resources, or quickly reclaim disturbances, requires an interdisciplinary approach from a team of technical and regulatory experts. Solstice can bring together an effective and experienced team to assess and mitigate potential impacts and constraints, resulting in least-cost alignment options, from an economic or environmental perspective.
