ICF cultural resources staff members provide as-needed cultural resources support related to electricity circuit pole replacements, line extensions, line relocations, reconductoring, undergrounding, and substation construction throughout California.
ICF provides records searches, field survey, resource identification and documentation, California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reporting, and test and evaluation services. ICF has successfully performed more than 150 separate task orders involving projects on both private and public lands in six counties.
The work efforts as part of this as-needed contract have involved constraints analyses, archaeological surveys, resource documentation, construction monitoring, site testing, and resource evaluation. The work has been related to SCE infrastructure replacements and development throughout the state on both private and public lands, including Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Forest Service, producing CEQA and Section 106 documentation for resource management and project planning.
Above and beyond our regular services, we have acted to support SCE staff in emergency site visits, immediate start-up of projects to accommodate SCE's unanticipated needs, and assumption of project scoping responsibilities using raw geographic information systems (GIS) locational data to provide efficient and seamless project progress. Our resource inventories enable efficient infrastructure maintenance and improvement while protecting significant resources.
