Biological Resource Compliance Services

Psomas is assisting Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) with biological resource regulatory compliance issues throughout their Southern California service area. Most recently Psomas provided federal, state, and local permitting assistance for a pipeline inspection project at the Goleta Storage facility in Santa Barbara County.

Psomas delineated areas potentially under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to support a request for concurrence with Nationwide Permit No. 6, as well as for a 401 pre-certification determination by the Regional Water Quality Control Board. An application for a Land Use Permit from Santa Barbara County and an application for a Coastal Development Permit from the California Coastal Commission were also prepared. Psomas also conducted biological resources surveys to document the presence/absence of species called out in the literature review. Consistent with the conditions of the Coastal Development Permit, Psomas conducted and documented pre- and post-construction surveys.
