England|Ecology was retained by Northgate Environmental to analyze the effect on biological resources of a proposed water infrastructure project including wells, tanks, and distribution lines, in the rural community of Salyer. Fieldwork included mapping of vegetation communities and development of floral and faunal compendia over the course of a single site visit. The final product was a biological assessment for a Section 7 consultation analyzing the effects of the project on potentially-occurring federally-listed biological resources, including Northern Spotted Owl and Yellow-billed Cuckoo. The first draft of the document was accepted as-is and the project was promptly completed.
