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