For over 30 years, Huffman-Broadway Group, Inc. (HBG) has been providing environmental regulatory permitting and related services to the private sector and public agencies for projects that unavoidably impact natural resources protected by federal, state, and local environmental laws and regulations. These protected resources include wetlands, streams and adjacent riparian areas, other aquatic habitats, and listed special status species and their habitats.
We work collaboratively with our clients and their teams by tailoring site specific permitting strategies that lead to successful project authorization. Success is based on our technical know-how and regulatory expertise, experience conducting supporting biological and ecological studies, and a long-term familiarity with regulatory agency policies and their authorization processes. Although most HBG projects are located within the western states, we have significant project experience throughout the US, including Alaska and Hawaii. Additionally, HBG has considerable experience in working throughout Latin America.
HBG was founded in 1984 by Terry Huffman, PhD. Dr. Huffman was the Chief Wetland Scientist for the US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) from 1976 to 1981, where he developed the Corps/US EPA wetlands definition and the technical criteria for the three-parameter methodology used to determine wetland boundaries. This methodology drives the wetland delineation and permitting processes of these agencies, today.
