After nearly 20 years in the steam, river and restoration industry, Trout Headwaters has developed a great appreciation for client relationships resulting in project outcomes that exceed expectations. Our client-first philosophy means we give each and every project, regardless of size, scope, or location, our full commitment to client satisfaction. Because some projects span many months or even years, good client relationships are critical to achieving the greatest potential for any given site.
Characteristics of Our Clients
Leadership, clear goals, and direct communication are the most important factors contributing to the success of our clients’ natural resource projects. A single, decisive, point of contact between our company and you or your representative makes for the most efficient and satisfactory outcomes. Our clients manage their resources based upon a mission that emphasizes environmental sustainability. They understand the immense value of freshwater resources, and that preserving and protecting these resources benefits all of us for generations to come. We grow and maintain professional relationships with resource owners and managers from the following sectors:
Recreational Ranch Owners
Rural landholders or recreational ranch owners may enjoy their property as a main residence, a recreational get-away, or a recreational business. Whether a guest ranch or a real estate investment, we help to restore and optimize ecological potential. Our firm helps to create an ecological environment that provides for unmatched recreational fishing, hunting, and wildlife viewing, thereby increasing real land values.
We see a changing paradigm for agribusiness. Agribusiness firms are now not just landholders, but also subject to new opportunities, liabilities, and regulations. This requires a unique set of expertise regarding water usage alternatives, and water quality and quantity protections. We understand where the value lies, whether improving water-use efficiencies or re-purposing water rights for alternative designations.
Alternative Energy Developers
We work with alternative energy supply companies to ensure compliance with water regulatory concerns. We use tools like conservation banking to provide mitigation credits to developers when needed. We help reduce risk by providing the expertise and oversight needed to protect and conserve water resources within a particular service area.
Building sustainable, green developments means recognizing the natural capital of the land. Valuable natural assets like streams, rivers, ponds and lakes, once thought of as wastelands, are now highly sought-after amenities. From consulting to design, to installation, we work to make comprehensive green development a proven strategy for developers. We help create value in regulatory driven markets, developing innovative asset/liability strategies to attract new customers and retain existing environmentally conscious customers.
Natural Resource Investment Managers
Natural resource investment managers manage natural resources, and natural-resource related investments for public and corporate pension plans, corporations, foundations, endowments and high net worth individuals. Their holdings may be domestic and/or international. We help by providing attractive risk management, and asset management plans to ensure quality and value in natural resources throughout the investment cycle.
Conservation organizations are highly varied in size, structure and area of emphasis, but the common goal is to protect and preserve the natural resources we all share. An example is a nonprofit working to restore healthy floodplains and the priceless ecological services these areas provide. We provide a turnkey approach from consulting to design to installation on projects of all sizes and scopes to create a proactive, sustainable, restoration strategy tied to the goals of your organization.
Since 1995 we have worked with government agencies to help green the policies of stream and river restoration. We’ve completed successful demonstrations of softer, green restoration technologies to replace hard structures like riprap. The work we do is reliable, sustainable, and maintenance-free. The treatments we develop and apply are natural, and more cost-effective than traditional hard engineering. When riparian areas and wetlands are restored instead of restrained, they are free to provide valuable ecological services we all need.
