Wetland Delineation, Mitigation and Permitting Services
Iowa River Landing Wetland Park - Coralville, Iowa
City of Coralville
Johnson County, Iowa
Just east of the Coralville Marriott and Convention center, and visible from many of the hotel’s rooms, is something you don’t often see near large hotels. A two-acre pond, surrounded by over five acres of mixed prairie, woodland and wetlands. Numerous animal and plant species thrive here in the Coralville Wetland Park, and raised pathways provide trails for guests to stroll.
Beginning in 2003, EarthView Environmental (EVE) has assisted the City of Coralville though multiple developments of the Wetland Park area, both directly and as a sub consultant to RDG Planning & Design. In 2003, EarthView conducted a wetland delineation and developed a mitigation plan for the hotel and conference center that not only provided for the federal and state regulatory permitting requirements, but also utilized the natural capital of this area, helping to create Coralville’s Iowa River Landing Wetland Park in the process. From 2007 to present, EVE has continued to monitor the site for regulatory compliance, as well as assist the Coralville Parks & Recreation Department in overall park maintenance, care and improvement, helping to maintain the sparkle on one of Coralville’s crown jewels.
