In addition, ESA is an employee-owned firm with a demonstrated record of corporate stability and controlled growth – important factors that foster trusting and enduring partnerships with our clients.

ESA has made a strong commitment to the principles of sustainability over the past three decades, both in terms of our internal operations as well as the focus of our professional services. We integrate rigorous science with practical engineering solutions to address a range of problems affecting the continuum of ecosystems ranging from the headwaters to the coast.  ESA specializes in the planning and design of multi-objective projects that result in sustainable flood protection, water quality improvement, ecosystem restoration, and recreational benefits.  The key to this success is first fully understanding the root causes of observed problems, and then developing solutions that work with rather than against the natural processes involved.  Over the last 30 years, many of ESA’s stream, wetland, and coastal restoration projects, and watershed management plans, have been implemented resulting in both lasting ecological and economic benefits as well as an extensive knowledge base of lessons learned to apply to future projects.
