Re: Your memo of May 11, 2004 concerning
wetlands proposal by White Environmental Services
We reviewed your memo and the letter from White Environmental Services dated April 28, 2004. We need more details, such as types of plant mitigation and a map showing specific locations. We are concerned about the idea of using the dredge material even if it is free of contaminants.
A wetland expert from our Township Engineer’s office should review what is presented. We would like to participate in the future review of this plan. We would be willing to meet with White Environmental and our Township Engineer before the plans go beyond the preliminary stage.
