With more than 25 years of experience in a field unique for its combination of applied ecological sciences and natural resource economics, IEc is widely acknowledged as the leading provider of natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) and restoration services to federal, state, and tribal governments. We are experts in all types of assessment, from the measurement of a coastal oil spill's immediate effects to the complex evaluation of a hazardous waste site's legacy of impact on its surrounding environment.

Our Services
  • Design and management of technical field studies that document natural resource injuries;
  • Application of leading edge economic techniques to translate reductions in natural resource services into monetary measures of damages;
  • Estimation of damages based solely on the analysis of existing, readily available data; and
  • Identify, evaluate, scale, and monetize restoration projects.

The unique needs of each case dictate the method(s) we use, but in all instances we emphasize a cost-effective approach that efficiently delivers resolution of their damage claim.

IEc has provided NRDA services in 40 of the 50 U.S. States including Alaska and Hawaii, as well as in Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
IEc provides support to Tribal trustees at sites across the US. We have assembled a bibliography of publicly available documents related to tribal assessments, included here for general reference. We plan to update this bibliography over time – please let us know if you have others to share by e-mailing Nadia Martin at nmartin@indecon.com. IEc does not endorse these documents, but simply provides them for reference by the NRDA community.
