PG&E Mokelumne River Water Quality/Water Temperature
S2S manages the water quality monitoring program for the Mokelumne River Hydroelectric Project, FERC Project No. 137/Condition No. 11. The water quality data are used, along with data from other resource investigations (water temperature, riparian zones, geomorphology, and fish, macroinvertebrate, and amphibian habitat), to determine the effect of project flow regimes on environmental resources. Collectively, data from these monitoring programs guide the regulatory agencies in setting appropriate flow regimes as specified under the continuous adaptive management program of the FERC license.
Location: Mokelumne River, Sierra Nevada Mountains
San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Demolition Biological Monitoring
The California Department of Transportation replaced the eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge with a new bridge immediately to the north. S2S is providing biological monitoring support for the phased dismantling of the original span, which includes the implosion of submerged supporting piers. Monitoring includes bird and marine mammal surveys, including species of concern, and fish kill observation and collection.
Location: San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge
Moss Landing Stormwater Management
After PG&E built a 4.5-acre expansion of its Moss Landing facility to improve service and reliability, S2S was tasked with revising the company’s stormwater permit. We revised the risk calculation, which had been incorrectly assessed, ensuring that all future compliance tasks were in compliance with PG&E’s expectations and the requirements of the Construction General Permit. S2S took over BMP installation, maintenance, and removal services to ensure that the project would remain in compliance. BMPs installed on the site included check dams and fiber rolls.
