Nelson Consulting Inc.

Kern River Pipeline

Nelson Consulting provided third party compliance for various BLM districts monitoring multiple pipeline rights-of-way in Utah, Nevada, and California totaling 771 miles. The compliance team was present for the entire development process from right-of-way, to construction completion, and restoration. We worked closely with all specialized monitors (archaeological, biological, environmental, FERC, and paleontological) to address project specific issues and streamline the variance process. Major issues addressed were construction in critical desert tortoise habitat, dust control and management in Clark County, NV., the removal and re-vegetation of 30,000 cacti and desert forbs on the ROW, presence of botanical species of concern, archaeological discoveries and crossing Red Rock National Recreation Area, NV.
