The relocation involved repair, replacement, and expansion of the existing piers, including pier support piles and decking. The project also included an innovative system that utilizes water pumped from San Francisco Bay to heat and cool the building, reducing the carbon footprint. The relocation of the museum required permits from the Corps, RWQCB, BCDC, consultation with NMFS for potential impacts to fish and marine mammals, and consultation with CDFW for Pacific herring. The heating and cooling system also required a new National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit from the RWQCB. Justin obtained all of these required permits and oversaw permit compliance during construction of the piers and museum. County of Santa Clara, Bridge Scour Natural Environmental Studies, Santa Clara County, California Twelve bridge locations within Santa Clara County were identified by Caltrans as having critical abutment scour necessitating repair. The Santa Clara County Roads and Airports Department, with funding from Caltrans, is completing the repairs, working with the Caltrans Office of Local Assistance. Justin oversaw completion of a Natural Environment Study (Minimal Impact) (NES MI) for each bridge, as required by Caltrans, and obtained regulatory agency permits for the projects. He also oversaw permit compliance during project construction, including preparation of revegetation and monitoring plans, implementation of the plans, and post -construction monitoring. Stinson Beach County Water District: Water Treatment Plant Site Assessment and Panoramic Well Replacement IS/MND, Marin County, California The Stinson Beach County Water District serves the community of Stinson Beach in Marin County, California, with water and wastewater management services, drawing drinking water from a mixture of surface and groundwater sources. WRA has assisted the Water District with an array of capital improvement and repair projects over the course of seven years. Justin helped to obtain approval from Marin County for a Coastal Development Permit associated with the expansion of the District's water treatment plant. He also completed an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the installation of a new groundwater extraction well. Completion of the IS/MND involved coordination with Marin County, local native tribes, as well as the California Coastal Commission. Old Canyon Road Bridge Scour Repair Biological Surveys and Permitting, Fremont, California The City of Fremont received funding from Caltrans to repair bridge scour at the Old Canyon Road Bridge located over Alameda Creek in Fremont, California. Alameda Creek is not currently an anadromous fish stream, but restoration will begin in 2014 to construct fish ladders and return anadromous steelhead to Alameda Creek. The Old Canyon Road Bridge currently presents a low -flow fish passage barrier due to the presence of poured concrete in the creek bed beneath the bridge. The bridge scour repair will remove the concrete and install rock protection around the bridge abutments. WRA prepared Caltrans biological resources documentation for the project and engaged with the National Marine Fisheries Service in a Technical Assistance for concurrence that the design would not be detrimental to fish passage once the downstream fish ladders had been completed WRA worked with the project engineers to assess potential fish passage issues at the bridge and to develop plans for fish passage that meet the National Marine Fisheries Service and California Department of Fish and Wildlife standards for fish passage. Mr. Semion was the project lead for WRA including attending meetings with stakeholder groups involved in the restoration of Alameda Creek, as well as overseeing preparation of environmental documentation and resource agency permit applications.

Many of the projects are related to abating flooding during storm events. WRA is working with EKI Consulting, the City's project manager, to address biological issues, permitting needs associated with the storm drain improvement program, compliance monitoring, and requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Many of the proposed improvements relate to flooding of channelized creeks. By nature these features are sensitive and regulated by a variety of agencies including the Corps of Engineers, Regional Water Quality Control Board, and the Department of Fish and Wildlife. Given the City's location adjacent to San Francisco Bay, several of the project areas are also in close proximity to habitat for federal listed species such as salt marsh harvest mouse and California clapper rail. WRA biologists conducted baseline surveys to map sensitive habitats and address the potential for various sensitive species prior to project initiation. If environmental permits, CEQA services, or habitat mitigation are needed, WRA assists with these tasks as well.

Santa Rosa Downtown Street Furniture Palette Initial Study/Negative Declaration, Santa Rosa, California Geoff served as Project Manager for an Initial Study/Negative Declaration for the Santa Rosa Downtown Street Furniture Palette Project. In October 2007, the City of Santa Rosa adopted the Downtown Station Area Specific Plan. Centered on a proposed Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) station site and encompassing most of Santa Rosa's Downtown, the Specific Plan defines the framework for future development in the Plan area. A priority implementation step called for by the Specific Plan is the development of Street Furniture Palettes. The Specific Plan defines a "palette" as a group of predetermined specifications that will be applied along individual corridors or in individual subareas within the Specific Plan area. The Palettes will provide guidance for street furniture purchases in association with new development and capital improvement projects, and for purchases made by both the public and private sectors. The Specific Plan identified seven unique subareas within approximately 'h mile of the SMART station site. The two subareas for which Street Furniture Palettes are to be prepared at this time are the Courthouse Square and Railroad Square commercial districts.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION WRA teamed with David J. Powers & Associates and Schaaf & Wheeler to complete the environmental review and permitting studies necessary to repair scour on a bridge across Alameda Creek in Fremont, California. Alameda Creek is not currently an anadromous fish stream, but restoration is anticipated to begin in 2014 to construct fish ladders and return anadromous steelhead to Alameda Creek. The Old Canyon Road Bridge currently presents a low -flow fish passage barrier due to the presence of poured concrete in the creek bed beneath the bridge. The bridge scour repair will remove the concrete and install rock protection around the bridge abutments. WRA prepared Caltrans biological resources documentation for the project and engaged with the National Marine Fisheries Service in a Technical Assistance for concurrence that the design would not be detrimental to fish passage once the downstream fish ladders had been completed.
