Reduce Monitoring Burdens Under ESA

For many projects monitors are required by entities to watch for Threatened and Endangered Species. Monitors can cost $100+ an hour. In addition dependent upon the species present, more than 1 monitor is required.

 

Reduction of the efforts for monitors could include: for cultural allowing a maximum of 1 monitor. For ESA reduction could include first week of work monitoring with periodic inspections, unless it is occuring during breeding season.
