She has coordinated and prepared environmental impact statements/reports (EISs/EIRs), environmental assessments (EAs), initial studies (ISs), and conducted biological surveys for projects involving transportation and infrastructure improvements, recreational trails, residential and mixed use developments, schools, solid waste and wastewater management, landfill closure, and military base realignments.
Ms. Steven has obtained permits and approvals for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers individual and nationwide permits (IP/NWP) and alternative analyses, and California Department of Fish and Game Streambed Alteration Agreement notification packages.
