Wetland Mitigation

Our experience designing, building and propagating plant material for wetland mitigation projects has given us the expertise to generate highly successful results on every wetland mitigation project we work on.  We have built hundreds of acres of wetlands including freshwater and tidal salt marsh mitigations and restorations.

Dam Removals

The importance of free flowing streams has become an important aspect of water shed conservation in recent years.  Aqua-niche has provided our services on numerous dam removal projects of all sizes. 

Shoreline Restoration

Aqua-niche has landscaped and restored many areas of shorelines along lakes, ponds and coastal areas.  This is a picture of a shoreline restoration in Monmouth County, NJ that Aqua-niche restored to stop erosion and provide habitat by installing native plantings.

Nature Trails/Boardwalks

An important component of restoring habitat is providing a way for the public to view and enjoy the wildlife it supports.  Aqua-niche has incorporated trails and boardwalks into many of it's projects over the years such as this one in Sussex County, NJ in the Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge.  You can also see a mulch walking trail running along the river that Aqua-niche also built.
