E2PM is routinely subcontracted to obtain approval for and monitor various maintenance to existing infrastructure improvements (i.e. existing access roads, culverts, and bridges) located within existing utility rights-of-ways throughout the state of New Jersey.  

In addition to the approval and monitoring tasks, where access to existing infrastructure (i.e. transmission towers) is non-existent, E2PM has been contracted to design roads and watercourse crossings when required. 

Typical maintenance projects include oversight (monitoring) of vegetation maintenance activities (i.e. routine clearing/mowing) as well as emergency “hot-spot” cutting (where vegetation is growing too close to conductors) where rare species are known to occur and where timing restrictions cannot be complied with as well as the maintenance of existing improvements (i.e. re-surfacing of existing access roads, pot-hole repairs).  

These projects have included delineations all regulated wetlands and State open waters, obtaining Letters of Interpretations, conducting rare species analysis and assessing future and potential construction/environmental monitoring requirements.  E2PM also has prepared and submitted several applications to both the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
