Chad Butler joined the Delta team in Summer of 2015. His 15 years of experience in the environmental consulting field and his Corps permitting knowledge help to further strengthen Delta’s presence as a mitigation provider in Texas. Chad is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University, where he gained a B.S. in Forestry with a Wildlife Management Emphasis. As a project manager for four years at Perennial Environmental Services and, before that, for ten years at Turner Collie & Braden, Inc./AECOM, he gained extensive experience in permitting and compliance under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulations and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Chad’s permitting experience in Texas allows Delta to provide support and consultation to permit applicants in addition to assisting with mitigation assessments, impact reviews, costs analysis and alternatives analysis. His experience and working relationships with the regulators within the Fort Worth and Galveston Corps Districts afford further support to the permitting process, outside of mitigation requirements. As the Texas Regulatory Manager, Chad will provide support to permit applicants with mitigation and permitting support within the state of Texas. He will lead and grow Delta’s Texas presence, with anticipation of further regional development.
