Ecobot Expedites Florida Wetland Delineations

Construction tech company Ecobot announced today that it has launched its latest software update, which includes workflow optimization for pre-construction permitting in Florida.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) assumed responsibility for the EPA’s Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 404 wetlands permitting program in December of 2020. Florida’s state-specific form, Form 62-340, is much longer and more complex than the wetland determination form used by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). A backlog for pre-construction wetlands permitting has grown since. The newest version of Ecobot streamlines the FDEP 404 process and Form 62-340 using automated calculations, built-in QA, look-up tools, reference imagery, and a Florida-specific wetland plant list.
New technology like Ecobot enables environmental consultants to better assess the impact of the built environment on the natural environment. “I’m excited that our team has access to tools that can make their time in the field more efficient,” says Ecobot customer Kelley Samuels, PWS CERP, senior ecologist and certified project manager at AECOM’s Orlando office.

The newest version of Ecobot is now available in the Apple App Store.
