Terracon was retained by our client to perform a threatened and endangered species assessment (TESA), cultural resources assessment (CRA), and Phase I environmental site assessment (ESA), per ASTM E 1527-05, on a 23,000 acre contiguous tract of land in Cloud County, Kan., the proposed site of a wind farm. The TESA, CRA, and Phase I ESA performed by Terracon included a site reconnaissance covering multiple land types such as agricultural, pasture, oil/gas operations, woodlands, floodplain, etc. The site reconnaissance allowed Terracon to identify areas of concern, including habitats and cultural resources. As a result of our findings, our client was able to more confidently evaluate the business risk of pursuing the wind energy project site. Terracon also performed geotechnical services for this project.
