Environmental Consulting Services
Otak has cultivated a strong relationship with Federal agencies, completing an extensive body of work on a wide variety of projects. We understand and value our public lands, as well as the complexity of each agency’s task in managing and preserving these important natural resources. We know that making good decisions about those resources takes foresight, knowledge, and the involvement of concerned resource managers and citizens.

Otak is adept at analyzing the existing landscape to document the visual environment, including landscape components such as landform and land cover (water, vegetation, human-made development), and the visual quality of the landscape. Our analysis includes identifying the limits of the visual environment and establish project viewsheds and key observation points. We have extensive experience evaluating the landscape and identifying how proposed changes will alter its scenic qualities, and developing strategies to mitigate potential impacts. We often work in conjunction with other resources and users to find balance and a workable solution that integrates multiple resource needs.
