Supporting NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service Office of Habitat Conservation
ESA is pleased to have been awarded NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service Office of Habitat Conservation IDIQ contracts for the Pacific Coast and South Atlantic Coast regions to provide a broad range of technical services to support habitat restoration and environmental programs in coastal, estuarine, and riverine environments.
We have developed this page to provide an overview of who, how, and where we can support NOAA for the duration of these contracts which run through July 2028.
The ESA Value
With thousands of completed projects, our technical team has a deep understanding of how to bring partners together to move projects forward quickly and efficiently. Collectively, the ESA Team can access more than 2,000 professionals, and our team has extensive experience working with NOAA throughout the Pacific Coast and South Atlantic Coast regions.

ESA is working with a broad team of subconsultants throughout the Pacific Coast and South Atlantic Coast regions, and want to acknowledge their contributions to the important work we’ll do together: IEc, AECOS, AIS, Baird, Callaway Marine Technologies, Inc., Cinquini & Passarino, Inc, Cramer Fish Sciences, Dial Cordy and Associates, Gravity Marine, Kleinschmidt, KPFF, Marine Exchange of Alaska, Mithun, River Design Group, RPI, Sea Engineering, Inc., Shannon & Wilson, WSP.
ESA and our teaming partners are standing by to support NOAA. Here is a shortlist of services we can provide:
Including topographic, bathymetric, ecological, hydrologic, geotechnical, geomorphic, contaminated materials, hydrogeological, cultural, economic, wetlands and plant and animal community assessments.
Including mapping and sampling which may require the use of boats and global positioning system (GPS) technology, and soil, sediment coring and/or surface or groundwater sampling equipment.
Including hydrologic and hydraulic evaluations, surface and groundwater quality and quantity, sediment or contaminant fate and transport, tidal elevation, tidal current and wave models.
Architecture & Landscape Architecture
Including support for environmental restoration and coastal resiliency projects.
Including project designs, construction plans, and permit applications as needed for compliance with federal, coastal state and local regulatory authorities.
Including administration, oversight, and project coordination.
Including preparation of Restoration Plans (RPs), Environmental Assessments (EAs) and Environmental Impact Statements (EISs).
Communications, Engagement & Outreach
Including press releases, social media campaigns, photography and videography assets, websites, storymaps, email campaigns, meeting facilitation and coordination, public information campaigns.
Including custom application development, data compliance and mitigation tracking, data management strategy, geospatial, land, and species conservation systems, project tracking, software platforms.
Coverage and Capacity
From Concept Through Implementation
Dozens of ESA projects are constructed every year. Take a look at some of our select completed projects throughout the Pacific and Atlantic regions.
