Fuss & O’Neill provided ecological and survey services along an approximately 250-wide swath of land of the 3-mile segment between the Litchfield Turnpike and the Mix Avenue Substation.
Survey services included researching local land records for mapping and title information pertinent to the project area and abutting properties. For this wide project area, a variety of sites required right-of-way staking and staking of property lines. We conducted boundary surveys and confirmed rights of access.
Ecological services included delineation of state and federal wetland and waters by field inspection and GPS mapping, assessment of threatened and endangered species, inventory of potential vernal pools, and evaluation of fisheries’ resources. Coordination with regulatory agencies was conducted to ensure that the proposed improvements of the transmission line were compliant with state and federal regulations.
