The Region’s Trusted Source for Stream and Wetland Permitting.
Stream & Wetland Permitting
AllStar Ecology has established itself as a leader in the region for regulatory issues related to streams and wetlands by providing clients with exceptional service and the necessary support to complete projects in both the public and private sectors.
We have completed field assessments and subsequent permitting packages on over 1,500 oil and gas projects spread across 50,000 acres in West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania since 2010. Our clients have found that the groundwork laid in the initial wetland and stream delineation often saves money over the entirety of their projects, as this phase of project assessment often allows clients to anticipate and plan for subsequent permitting; including but not limited to threatened and endangered species surveys, Phase 1 cultural resource investigations, and mitigation and restoration planning.
Our Services Include:
• Delineations and Permitting
• Mitigation Solutions
• Environmental Monitoring
• Restoration Design
• Construction Services

Environmental Scientist III / Senior Project Manager
David Bohnert became part of the AllStar team in 2014 as a field delineator. He currently works as a Senior Project Manager focusing on client correspondence, scheduling fieldwork, creating and reviewing environmental reports, and conducting state and federal environmental permitting. Mr. Bohnert still conducts environmental fieldwork occasionally on impact assessments to ascertain what, if any, permitting will be required.
Permitting Post Tree Clearing
AllStar performed agency correspondence after a tree clearing event occurred prior to the submittal of environmental permitting for a project in Noble County, OH. This resulted in multiple complications in the permitting process associated with the premature cutting, particularly with the USACE and USFWS in regards to Nationwide and ESA Section 7 Permitting. However, AllStar handled these complications quickly and effectively and the project is currently scheduled for construction.
AllStar completed a stream and wetland delineation and rare, threatened, and endangered capture study as part of the permitting process for the construction of a pipeline right of way in Marshall County, WV. AllStar staff coordinated with WVDEP, USACOE, USFWS, and WVDNR in order to successfully complete the permitting process.
Stream & Wetland Delineation
AllStar conducted a stream and wetland delineation within an existing project area in Doddridge County, WV. Although the project had already been constructed, increased culvert outlet protection was needed to control erosion. Prior to construction, permitted impacts were flagged to clearly mark areas permitted for impacts.
