Rincon Consultants prepared a Section 404 Individual Permit Application, Section 401 Certification, and Streambed Alteration Agreement for a proposed 140 unit residential development on a 700-acre property located a hillside area of San Benito County. Rincon also aided in the Section 7 consultation process and prepared a general biological survey and detailed Red-legged frog survey in accordance with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service protocol. Rincon also provided expert witness testimony regarding technical issues related to wetlands and endangered species that were necessary as a result of a land dispute with former owners of the property. Rincon subsequently prepared an implementation plan for wetland and riparian habitat plantings, monitored the construction of the new wetland, and are proceeding with long term monitoring of the created wetlands to meet permit requirements.
