State and Regional Planning

In all of our work, Reza Environmental strives to incorporate relevant state agency priorities and regional preferences.

For example, the 2006 passage of AB 32 required state agencies to respond to climate change. We considered it our responsibility to bring this new focus to our clients: a local Watershed Management Plan was one of the first to contain climate change considerations at our recommendation. This inclusion benefits the state by incorporating climate change priorities on the local watershed level. It also benefits stakeholders by making the plan reflective of state preferences and landowners and residents aware of potential local impacts of climate change.

For other clients, we have evaluated site-specific, local, federal, and regional plans in order to ensure the project we developed responded to previously identified needs. This enables us to develop competitive proposals that compliment ongoing efforts while also accomplishing our client’s objectives.

Our work has improved water quality in Areas of Special Biological Significance along California's North Coast.
