Van Vlissingen Prairie Environmental Remediation & Habitat Restoration

Chicago, Illinois

The Chicago Park District selected V3 Companies to develop habitat restoration and environmental remediation plans for the ecological revitalization of the Van Vlissingen Prairie. Project challenges included establishing practical habitat and native plant communities in highly degraded environments, while mitigating the human health and ecotoxicological risks posed by site contaminants, the presence of sensitive species and planned eco-recreational use. V3 services included field investigations, advanced human health and ecological risk assessments, native plant selection and design plans.
