Stone, Sand & Gravel REVIEW - September/October 2016 - 21

continue to be reviewed and revised - for example, regulators seek to clarify the "geographical area occupied by the species" by proposing the following definition: "the geographical area which may generally be delineated around the species' occurrences, as determined by the Secretary (i.e., range)." Under such a definition, areas used throughout all or part of a species' life cycle may be regulated. Navigating these changes and their implementation requires a team that is knowledgeable, up-to-date on current issues and is well respected by the Agencies while also able to act and advocate in the best interest of the project proponents. Firms like Golder Associates have expertise in supporting aggregates operations with development projects affected by the Act and uses various methods to help clients comply with its provisions. The firms use online Agency tools, facilitate early coordination, surveys for affected species, encourage partnerships between project proponents and Agency staff, implement conservation easements or land swaps and identifying activities that may require alternate schedules or temporary restrictions like blasting, tree clearing or land disturbance. Consider bringing in experts to help navigate the process efficiently with creative problem-solving to keep cost and schedule on track and earn goodwill from the local community by addressing endangered species concerns proactively. ■ REFERENCES Hermance 2013 ² Responsible Agency 3 MNDNR 2016 4 USFWS 2016a 5 USFWS 2016a 1 Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR). 2016.
