Southern California Edison

Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project Segments 7 & 8, CA

Wilson constructed approximately 49 miles of double-circuit 500kV and 7 miles of 220kV transmission line through highly urban areas as well as undeveloped open spaces in California's Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. Wilson's on-site team of environmental professionals managed the challenging constraints of the project and worked directly with construction crews to ensure compliance with the project's numerous mitigation measures. Wilson implemented four Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) by performing daily inspections, installing and maintaining BMPs, and performing site restoration.

Wilson successfully employed mitigation measures for the protection of migratory, threatened, and endangered bird species. Impacts to construction were managed by tracking bird nests and the implementation of a rigorous bird-deterrent program.
