SR 149 Vernal Pool Creation
With the approval of the State Route 149 environmental document came the requirements to perform environmental mitigations as a result of the project's direct and indirect impacts. One of the environmental commitments was to deliver a vernal pool complex with preserved, restored and created vernal pools and their associated species. On behalf of Caltrans, BCAG led the effort to solicit a consultant/contractor to develop the Vernal Pool Habitat Development Plan (HDP) and proceed to build the project prior to or concurrent with roadway construction.
- In April of 2005, BCAG circulated a Request for Proposals (RFP)
- In February of 2006, BCAG contracted with Restoration Resources of Rocklin, CA
- In February of 2007, the Vernal Pool Complex was completed
