Section 408 Permitting

The MBK team offers unique career experience, both as consultants and as former regulators at the USACE, in the 33 USC 408 (Section 408) permission process. This consultant experience includes MBK’s project and program management of environmental compliance, permitting, engineering and design, construction, and real estate acquisition on multiple levee improvement programs implementing large-scale, flood risk reduction, and ecosystem restoration projects. Additionally, as part of these efforts, MBK successfully obtained over ten Section 408 permits for alteration of Federal levees, including the breaching of Federal levees to support flood risk reduction and ecosystem restoration, and is currently working on an additional six projects that are in the process of obtaining 408 permission.
