BioMaAS provided environmental management and monitoring during an emergency pipeline repair requiring the dewatering of Central California Coast Steelhead habitat. Inspection of construction practices, monitoring water quality, relocation of biological resources, and coordination with city, county, state, and federal agencies, as well as the contractor, were top priorities on this high profile project. During post construction, BioMaAS prepared and implemented a revegetation plan for the site of emergency pipeline repair work on the bank of the San Francisquito Creek. This included the design and implementation of erosion control measures to stabilize the creek bank within the disturbed project site. BioMaAS botanists conducted plant surveys and a full review of historic vegetation of the surrounding area to design and implement a specific revegetation plan tailored to the site. Plant species and seed were obtained from native species which originated from stock within the San Francisquito Creek watershed and surrounding area. BioMaAS currently provides ongoing maintenance and monthly site assessments to determine vegetative cover, plant survivorship, and slope stability of the creek bank.
