Buncombe County, NC
Pratt & Whitney, a Connecticut-based aircraft engine manufacturing company, turned to ClearWater when they contracted to build an 800,000 sq. ft., $650 million+ manufacturing facility on a 90 acre site in Buncombe County near the French Broad River.
ClearWater performed a comprehensive wetland delineation, and a threatened and endangered species survey. We also conducted a Section 7 Consultation for Appalachian elktoe, Gray Bat and Northern long-eared bat, species found in the area of the site to ensure these species were not jeopardized.
We filed a Cultural Resources and Memorandum of Agreement, conducted a Public Hearing, and secured Section 10 and Section 404 US Army Corps Individual Permits and a 401 Water Quality permitting for the project.
