Sequoia’s team of biologists, planners, and project managers supported this 36-mile transmission reconductoring project and PG&E’s service-wide safety upgrades to electric transmission lines, providing pre-construction surveys and planning, project management, and biological monitoring that included helicopter and crane work.
Because of the project’s wide geographical range, Sequoia assisted PG&E with site assessment and mitigation and monitoring to comply with ten different environmental permits including East Contra Costa County’s (ECCC’s) Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). We also performed pre-activity surveys for listed species, pre-construction nesting bird surveys, and full-time biological monitoring of golden eagle, bald eagle, and other avian species during helicopter work. As a result of Sequoia’s effective project management and rigorous QA/QC, all 12 of the site inspections performed by 6 regulatory agencies over the course of the 8-month program resulted in a finding of compliance.
