Nelson Consulting Inc.

Nevada Power Company′s (NPC) Harry Allen to Mead (HAMD) 500kV Transmission Line Project, Clark County, Nevada

Nelson Consulting provided third party compliance and dust monitoring for the NPC HAMD 500kV Project representing the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The HAMD 500kV Project consisted of the erection of lattice steel towers and tubular steel poles within a 200 ft ROW, 48 miles in length. The BLM Las Vegas Field Office required right-of-way grant holders to contract with an independent third party referred to as a Compliance Inspection Contractor (CIC) to promote environmental protection and ensure compliance. NCI staff, (the CICs), provided monitoring of the construction activities, dust control, sensitive plant and desert tortoise concerns, environmental training, ROW and access issues, non-compliance issues, and working closely with all specialized monitors (archaeological, biological, paleontological). This was another large, successful project in which Nelson Consulting supplied the third party compliance in critical desert tortoise habitat combined other with biological species of concern.
