Location: Kansas

Client: Confidential

Burns & McDonnell conducted a desktop environmental and permitting review for a proposed wind energy project in eastern Kansas. The environmental review included a review of wetlands, protected species, cultural resources, land use, floodplains, proximity to airports, sensitive areas, etc. In addition, a permitting review was also completed to determine which permits and/or studies may be required for this project at this specific location. The environmental and permitting review was used to identify potential development constraints.
