The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has adopted a number of stringent regulations to guide its efforts on ecological protection. Early identification of development constraints will help you to avoid fines, violations, or costly revisions. Once environmental elements are identified, early planning and on-going design collaboration can eliminate unwanted surprises or challenges to development. Integrating ecological elements, such as wetlands, woodlands, and rain gardens can also enhance the value of your property.
