Northwestern Missouri Wind Energy

Location: Northwestern Missouri

Client: Confidential

Burns & McDonnell conducted a desktop environmental and permitting review for this proposed wind energy project in northwestern Missouri. The environmental review included a review of wetlands, protected species, cultural resources, land use, floodplains, proximity to airports, sensitive areas, etc. A permitting review was also completed to determine which permits and/or studies may be required for this project at this location. The environmental and permitting review was used to identify potential development constraints. As a result of these studies, an Indiana bat (Myotis sodalis) habitat assessment was completed in summer 2007 to determine if this federally protected species habitat occurs in the project area.
