California Rapid Assessment Method – Trained!

In April, two additional staff members completed the California Rapid Assessment Method (CRAM) “Practitioner” training for riverine and depressional wetlands. CRAM is an assessment toolkit used to evaluate the functional condition and status of aquatic features such as streams, wetlands, vernal pools, and riparian or estuarine systems. These types of evaluations are not only useful, but are required in some regions of the state to develop and/or analyze proposed mitigation measures during the design and permitting phases. You might also see this as a requirement on a Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Standards Certification as a pre-construction or post-construction special condition of approval, or specified in restoration plans as a method for measuring and reporting progress towards meeting success criteria or achieving compensatory mitigation goals. ECORP has CRAM-trained professionals ready to help with your projects throughout California.
