Maintaining compliance and avoiding delays
Padre provides comprehensive biological monitoring during construction, typically required by regulatory permits and Environmental Impact Reports. Monitoring may be part-time or full-time depending on the presence of special-status species or other sensitive biological resources. Monitoring services are tailored to the project and its permit conditions, to ensure resources are protected and on-site the monitor’s time is efficiently utilized. Monitoring may include relocation of special-status species if found in the work area, including fish rescue during stream diversion activities. Special-status species relocated by Padre biologists have included California red-legged frog, coast horned lizard, pond turtle, two-striped garter snake, tidewater goby, arroyo chub and Santa Ana sucker. If requested, we can provide water quality monitoring (required for construction dewatering, stream diversion) simultaneously with biological monitoring.
