|Project Name:||San Luis Obispo Tank Farm Restoration and Redevelopment Project, San Luis Obispo, California|
|Services:||Wetland Delineation, Wetland Restoration Planning, Permitting and Biological Surveys|
|Client:||Chevron Environmental Management Company|
Padre is currently providing permitting and environmental services to Chevron Environmental Management Company for the proposed remediation, restoration, and re-development of the former San Luis Obispo Tank Farm Property in San Luis Obispo. This 340-acre property was historically used for the storage of crude oil within the former transportation system on the Central Coast. The property was impacted by the release of petroleum hydrocarbons during a 1926 lightning strike and fire that released over a million barrels of oil to the surrounding area. Padre has submitted a project application package to regulatory agencies for the remediation and restoration of the former tank farm, including over 30 acres of wetlands, and the eventual re-development of portions of the site for light industrial and business park uses. Padre prepared site-wide wetland surveys, rare plant surveys, and a wetland restoration plan for implementation immediately following site remediation activities. Padre is also working with GANDA on this project to address on-site historical resources concurrently with site-wide planning.
