PlanTierra LLC

PlanTierra LLC, an environmental consulting firm, was founded in Davis, CA in June 2010, to provide senior scientific support to a wide variety of agricultural and other land and water managers. We help clients with strategic planning, collaborative problem solving related to planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities, design and execution of research and analysis, scientific documentation, regulatory negotiation, and expert witness. We have strong relationships throughout the regulatory, agricultural, academic, and consulting communities, and have experience working closely with federal agencies (BOR, EPA, DOE, DOD, and USAID), agricultural commodity groups, municipalities, stakeholder groups and processes, regulatory (air and water quality) agencies, and special districts (irrigation, drainage, flood control, and publicly owned treatment works).

Senior staff is multi-lingual, with experience working in North America, Africa, and Asia. Current projects are in the Western United States, mainly California, and focus on large-scale land stabilization to prevent wind erosion and dust emissions; irrigation supply and return flow water quality; basin- to field-level water, salt, and nutrient management; and water conservation.
