El Casco Project
Client: Southern California Edison
Location: Beaumont, California
EI is providing construction monitoring and biological services to SCE to facilitate reporting obligations and CEQA mitigation compliance for the El Casco System Project. The El Casco System Project entails the construction of a new 220/115/12 kilovolt substation, upgrading the existing substations and communications site, upgrading 15.4 miles of 115 kilovolt electric subtransmission line and associated structures, and installing fiber optic communication cables within existing conduits in public streets and on existing SCE structures between the Cities of Redlands and Banning, California. At the onset of the project, EI deployed a customized database and project portal to organize monitoring reports, photographs, and technical data. The web portal also coordinates daily monitoring data for six independent consulting groups including biological, archeological, water quality, air quality, and miscellaneous monitors. EI’s portal allows field biologists to enter daily observations using standardized forms for data, photos, GIS information, and recommendations. EI’s staff managed all training and implementation of the portal which has been used daily for over one year with no down-time.
“Environmental Intelligence, LLC provided a detailed and innovative analysis of sensitive biological resources that allowed Centennial Founders to offer the county a mitigation program that protects sensitive vegetation types across tens of thousands of acres. EI’s technical team was dedicated to high scientific and ethical standards while providing data and consulting services that supported Centennial’s overall development program.”
