Mr. Koth is spearheading an ongoing case study for bank stabilization. Using a project that required several methods for stream bank stabilization, Mr. Koth is tracking the constructability, cost, and success of the various measures and will continue to report on the challenges and successes.

The Virginia Senate Report that Mr. Koth prepared for the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is an example of the variety of expertise Mr. Koth has amassed throughout his career. This report was distributed to the Virginia Senate and formed the basis for the Removal of Embrey Dam in Fredericksburg, Virginia.


Mr. Koth has extensive experience in site development and environmental projects. Many of his clients originate from people who have contacted him to solve problems for an ongoing project. Often, this is during construction when it is crucial that a cost effective solution be developed quickly and negotiated successfully with regulatory agencies.
