Protecting Wetlands and Controlling Erosion and Sediment with MACC

When it comes to protecting the environment, conservation commissions are on the front line, working within communities to protect their natural resources. With six of our engineers currently serving as conservation commissioners in their local communities, many others serving in the past, and our 28 years of experience working with conservation commissions throughout the Commonwealth for project approvals, Nitsch Engineering is proud to support the work that the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions (MACC) is doing to protect wetlands, open space, and biological diversity by providing education and advocacy for conservation commissions.

On Saturday, May 5, 2018, Nitsch Engineering is excited to provide training for current conservation commissioners and staff as part of MACC’s Fundamentals Certificate Program.
