About Eddie

Eddie joined Boffa Miskell in 2001, and has extensive experience in assessment of the effects of human activities on freshwater streams, rivers, and lakes and their biological communities of plants, macroinvertebrates and fishes.

With an interest in stream restoration and rehabilitation, Eddie has investigated environmental issues relating to the ecological health of streams and rivers including nutrient enrichment, contaminant discharges, sedimentation, barriers to fish passage, and stream modification including piping and realignment. He has provided expert advice for stream reconstruction or “daylighting” projects and plays a key role in advising clients on appropriate measures to avoid or mitigate adverse effects on aquatic habitats and communities.

Familiarity with aquatic habitats and communities combined with an in-depth knowledge of assessment methodologies allow Eddie to meet the practical information needs of both corporate and local government clients. He is an experienced expert witness at resource consent and Environment Court hearings.
