City of Boise
Personnel
BCs project team provides the City with BCs best technical experts in all facets of the NEPA process,
ESAs, and environmental audits. From Phase I ESAs to archaeological and historic resource investigations,
BC has the expertise needed to support the City in its continued quest to be on the leading edge. The
following section highlights the qualifcations and industry-advancing contributions of our technical team,
as well as some example projects from the past 5 years. Full resumes for each of these technical experts,
plus additional support staff, are included in the Appendix. * Indicates Idaho license.
Project Approach
BCs project management
approach is based on our
experience successfully
managing local on-call
contracts with the cities of
Boise, Meridian, and Nampa,
as well as regional experience
with Seattle Public Utilities and
Pierce County, Washington.
From initial scoping through
project completion, our project
management approach
emphasizes clear and
frequent communication
that enables us to address
issues that may arise and
help ensure that we meet the
Citys critical success factors
for each project. During task
order initiation, BC will work
with the City to develop a
project team, scope, schedule,
and budget tailored to your
needs. Our experienced
team will identify areas of
uncertainty inherent in the
project and work with the
City to include appropriate
assumptions.
As part of project scoping,
BC will work with the City to
identify the best technical
experts for each task. As a
priority client for BC, the City
has access to BCs full suite of
technical experts.
ADVANCING Budget and Schedule Compliance
BC implements a world-class project controls system for all projects. This
system, known as WorkSmart, integrates BCs technical, accounting, and
human resources information systems through an interactive Web-based
platform. WorkSmart is BCs one-stop shop for all project managers and
team members for scope, schedule, budget, and quality assurance/quality
control (QA/QC) management. Each project set up in WorkSmart contains
a profle linked to the critical components described and is available to any
project team member.
Tracking and Reporting. BC will use WorkSmart to generate monthly
project reports that provide an overview of project schedule and budget
status. The monthly reporting will help assess the projects schedule
progress alongside its budget and scope performance, which will help the
team identify and mitigate potential slippage early. These reports will be
discussed with the City on a monthly basis.
Change Management. Project changes happen; managing them
effectively is the key to successful project delivery. Rebecca and her team
will actively identify and track any project changes and assess their impact.
When a change is required, BC will work closely with the City before the
scope is changed or additional budget is spent.
ADVANCING Quality Control
BCs approach to quality combines management, people, and procedures
to ensure the delivery of quality products and service to our clients. Our QC
activities actually begin prior to delivery of our proposals and run through
the planning, design, and construction phases of the project. On every
project, BC implements our established QA/QC procedures to ensure that
all calculations, reports, and technical memoranda are reviewed by senior
professionals who are experts in their respective felds of engineering and
science. Our approach focuses on promoting creativity by use of the best
brains philosophy for every task, while maintaining an uncompromising
commitment to quality.
ADVANCING Team Communications
BC will actively communicate with all project team members throughout
the course of the project, and City staff will have direct access to Rebecca
and BCs technical experts to stay apprised of the latest information
regarding the status of the project.

Project Approach
BCs project management
approach is based on our
experience successfully
managing local on-call
contracts with the cities
of Boise, Meridian, and
Nampa, as well as regional
experience with Seattle
Public Utilities and Pierce
County, Washington. From
initial scoping through project
completion, our project
management approach
emphasizes clear and
frequent communication
that enables us to address
issues that may arise and
help ensure that we meet
the Citys critical success
factors for each project.
During task order initiation,
BC will work with the City
to develop a project team,
scope, schedule, and budget
tailored to your needs. Our
experienced team will identify
areas of uncertainty inherent
in the project and work with
the City to include appropriate
assumptions.
As part of the project scoping,
BC will work with the City to
identify the best technical
experts for each task. As a
priority client for BC, the City
has access the BCs full suite
of technical experts.
ADVANCING Budget and Schedule Compliance
BC implements a world-class project controls systems for all projects.
This system, known as WorkSmart, integrates BCs technical systems,
accounting, and human resources information systems through an
interactive Web-based platform. WorkSmart is BCs one-stop shop
for all project managers for scope, schedule, budget, and QA/QC
management. Each project set up in WorkSmart contains a profle
linked to the critical components described and is available to any
project team member.
Tracking and Reporting. BC will use WorkSmart to generate monthly
project reports that provide an overview of project schedule and budget
status. The monthly reporting will help assess the projects schedule
progress alongside its budget and scope performance, which will help
the team identify and mitigate potential slippage early. These reports
will be discussed with the City on a monthly basis.
Change Management. Project changes happen; managing them
effectively is the key to successful project delivery. Rebecca and her
team will actively identify and track any project changes and assess
their impact. When a change is required, BC will work closely with the
City before the scope is changed or additional budget is spent.
ADVANCING Quality Control
BCs approach to quality combines management, people, and
procedures to ensure the delivery of quality products and service to our
clients. Our QC activities actually begin prior to delivery of our proposals
and run through the planning, design, and construction phases of
the project. On every project, BC implements our established QA/
QC procedures to ensure that all calculations, reports, and technical
memoranda are reviewed by senior professionals who are experts in
their respective felds. Our approach focuses on promoting creativity by
use of the best brains philosophy for every task, while maintaining an
uncompromising commitment to quality.
ADVANCING Team Communications
BC will actively communicate with all project team members
throughout the course of the project, and City staff will have direct
access to Rebecca and BCs technical experts to stay apprised of the
latest information regarding the status of the project.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience investigating and
assessing leaking USTs and providing UST removal and
remediation of a contaminated site to closure.
BC has received notifcation of no further
action after conducting soil and groundwater
remediation activities at a former fueling station in
southwestern Idaho. Site activities have included
UST decommissioning and removal, UST basin
over-excavation, and onsite, aboveground soil
vapor extraction (SVE) (biopile) treatment and
offsite disposal; site characterization using direct-
push sampling equipment; and collection of
soil vapor samples from temporary exploratory
borings. The site was evaluated using IDEQs Risk
Evaluation Manual and software, and determined
to require corrective action based on current and
future receptors. Remediation of remaining in situ
impacted soil and groundwater onsite includes
SVE and air sparging via a network of remediation
wells. Downgradient impacts have been treated
with oxygen-release compound to enhance
the natural bioremediation processes in areas
that are diffcult to access using conventional
methods. Free product occurred periodically during
periods of low static water level, and is collected
in specially designed free product recovery wells
and active free product skimmers. Two domestic
wells are located within 50 feet of the contaminant
plume and were regularly monitored to ensure
that local residents are not exposed to detectable
concentrations of water-borne contaminants.
Site progress was tracked through semiannual
groundwater monitoring until closure of the site
was obtained from IDEQ in July 2014.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience assisting with the
permitting an active un-permitted non-municipal solid
waste facility
BC assisted the City of Nampa with permitting
an active un-permitted, non-municipal solid
waste facility that was determined to have
elevated metals concentrations. BC designed a
comprehensive investigation plan consisting of
numerous soil borings, methane monitoring wells,
and groundwater monitoring wells to evaluate
subsurface conditions and extent of contamination
(evaluated for hydrocarbons, chlorinated
and non-chlorinated compounds, pesticides,
herbicides, and metals) if encountered. A detailed
investigation report, which presented elevated
metal concentrations in the soil at the site, was
submitted to IDEQ for review and approval. Due
to the presence of elevated metal concentrations,
remedial efforts were necessary to eliminate
the risk for contamination. BC determined that
the most practical and cost-effective method for
remediation was placing an impermeable material
across the contaminated area, which allowed for
risking away the contamination concern.

Midwest. This work includes design and installation of groundwater
monitoring wells using hollow-stem auger, mud rotary, air rotary, reverse air
rotary, driven casing, downhole hammer, and direct-push drilling methods
from as shallow as a few feet to 1,000 feet deep. Jeff has also been
involved with the investigation and remediation at leaking UST sites, RCRA
facilities, and CERCLA facilities, and led the Nampa and Meridian efforts
evaluating land application and infltration for treated wastewater effuent.
He has provided project management, QA/QC, and technical expertise
and served as a contract lead for numerous on-call-type environmental
contracts. For the past 6 years, he has provided groundwater and

City of Boise
Project Approach
BCs project management
approach is based on our
experience successfully
managing local on-call
contracts with the cities
of Boise, Meridian, and
Nampa, as well as regional
experience with Seattle
Public Utilities and Pierce
County, Washington. From
initial scoping through project
completion, our project
management approach
emphasizes clear and
frequent communication
that enables us to address
issues that may arise and
help ensure that we meet
the Citys critical success
factors for each project.
During task order initiation,
BC will work with the City
to develop a project team,
scope, schedule, and budget
tailored to your needs. Our

project reports that provide an overview of project schedule and budget
status. The monthly reporting will help assess the projects schedule
progress alongside its budget and scope performance, which will help
the team identify and mitigate potential slippage early. These reports will
be discussed with the City on a monthly basis.
Change Management. Project changes happen; managing them
effectively is the key to successful project delivery. Jeff and his team will
actively identify and track any project changes and assess their impact.
When a change is required, BC will work closely with the City before the
scope is changed or additional budget is spent.
ADVANCING Quality Control
BCs approach to quality combines management, people, and
procedures to ensure the delivery of quality products and service to our
clients. Our QC activities actually begin prior to delivery of our proposals
and run through the planning, design, and construction phases of
the project. On every project, BC implements our established QA/
QC procedures to ensure that all calculations, reports, and technical
memoranda are reviewed by senior professionals who are experts in
their respective felds. Our approach focuses on promoting creativity by
use of the best brains philosophy for every task, while maintaining an

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience providing numerous
drilling methods and contracting drilling services;
supporting negotiations with IDEQ; and obtaining
necessary permits for drilling and wells
BC has conducted subsurface investigations
at more than 75 sites in Idaho as part of
our contract with PSTF. These investigations
are the results of observed or suspected
releases from USTs. Subsurface investigations
have included sample collection with direct-
push technology; soil gas surveys; and
installation of soil borings and placement
of monitoring wells with hollow-stem auger,
air rotary, or sonic drilling equipment for the
purpose of site characterization of soil and
groundwater impacts. BC has developed
over 50 hydrogeologic conceptual models
for petroleum-impacted sites in Idaho to
support the Risk Evaluation process on sites
since August 1996. These models are based
on site-specifc groundwater investigations,
fnding and review of area-wide driller logs,
and compilation of hydrogeologic sources
(e.g., USGS and IDWR reports). The models
are then used to predict contaminant fate
and transport and also to evaluate the risk to
human receptors. Remedial and corrective
action activities have been performed on
over 40 of these locations with technologies
ranging from excavation and disposal to soil
vapor extraction/air sparging to chemical
oxidation. Project activities have been turnkey,
running from initial rapid-response activities
to obtaining no further action status and
decommissioning of onsite remedial systems.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience negotiating VCO with IDEQ,
knowledgeable of soil and water quality issues related to
shooting ranges, and ability to risk away contaminants
eliminating remediation
The City of Nampa purchased an abandoned gravel
pit for use as a leaf and street sweepings disposal
area. In 2010, the City wanted to further expand its
disposal area within the abandoned pit and identifed
a former police shooting range within the expansion
area along with information indicating that the site
had been used since the 1960s for unsupervised
public solid waste disposal. The City contracted with
BC to assist with obtaining regulatory approval for
closing the police shooting range and permitting
the facility for construction and demolition waste
disposal. BC advised the City on entering into a VCO
with IDEQ, which allows for investigation and cleanup
of the property without potential penalties to the City
for ownership of an unpermitted disposal facility and
abandoned shooting range (potential hazardous waste
site). Following execution of the VCO, BC designed
a comprehensive investigation plan consisting of
numerous soil borings, methane monitoring wells, and
groundwater monitoring wells to evaluate subsurface
conditions and extent of contamination if encountered.
A detailed investigation report, which presented
elevated metal concentrations in the soil at the site,
was submitted to IDEQ for review and approval. Due
to the presence of elevated metal concentrations,
remedial efforts were necessary to eliminate the
risk for contamination. BC determined that the most
practical and cost-effective method for remediation
was placing an impermeable material across the
contaminated area, which allowed for risking away
the contamination concern. BC also prepared and
implemented a groundwater monitoring plan for
assessing groundwater conditions following capping

the potential for contamination and IDEQ has released the City from its VCO. Through BCs solid waste
engineering services, IDEQ has permitted the site for disposal of inert materials.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience developing hydrological site
conceptualization models and knowledge of water quality issues
within in the Treasure Valley
BC has worked with the City of Nampa in developing
a program to evaluate land application/infltration for
management of the Citys wastewater effuent. BC
conducted a GIS program designed to evaluate areas
with geology conducive to water infltration. Based on
this effort, multiple areas were identifed for drilling and
testing. The drilling and sampling work plan consisted of
multiple test holes for evaluating subsurface geology and
hydrogeology. A hydrological site conceptualization model
was developed for each area using the available existing
data combined with the site-specifc data. Based on data
collected, a groundwater fow model was developed in
MODFLOW as a screening tool to compare and contrast
the prospective sites on their suitability for infltrating
18 million gallons per day (mgd) of effuent. As part of
the site evaluation, analytical tools were used to assess
the potential impacts the infltrated water would have
on the water quality of the potentially impacted aquifer.
The analysis conducted provided the data required to
assess potential impacts to the groundwater table and
changes in water quality that the infltration project
would have on the surrounding area. The methodology
developed provided a systematic way of assessing the
potential infltration sites by providing the City with the
necessary information to make an informed decision
concerning a large capital improvement project.

Ted Douglass is an experienced project manager who helps our
clients solve regional and local stormwater issues. His technical role
revolves around developing and supporting local municipal separate
storm sewer systems (MS4) clients to meet or address NPDES permit
requirements. Specifc experiences include permit negotiation;
Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) development; and oversight of
the development, implementation, and evaluation of Minimum Control
Measures (MCMs) and stormwater monitoring and reporting identifed
in both Phase I and II permits. He understands that each permittee
has internal drivers and barriers that are specifc to that agency. Ted
helps clients work within this framework to assess specifc permit
requirements and application, evaluate stormwater quality, and report
on water quality as it pertains to each MS4. In addition to supporting
the development of programs, Ted has been able to manage the
following types of additional studies: best management practice (BMP)
and low-impact development (LID) removal effciency analysis; Multi-
Sector General Permit (MSGP) application, termination, monitoring, and
reporting; program comparison analysis; local climate trend analysis;
development of a Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) Guidance
Manual; and development and revisions of Stormwater Pollution
Prevention Plans (SWPPP).
ADVANCING Project Management
Ted has a proven track record of delivering client-
specifc, innovative stormwater solutions by
leveraging regional and national experts to provide
context to local issues. A key component to the
success of delivering these types of projects is
a history of working with clients and BC staff to
ensure that the project is delivered in accordance
with the agreed-upon scope, schedule, and
budget. He understands that each of our clients
has a unique, specifc approach to meeting permit
requirements, and has been able to support
numerous municipalities in meeting permit
requirements associated with the level-of-service
expectations of the client.
Relevant Experience within the Past 5 Years
As a project manager for the NPDES Phase I and
II permits issued to the City of Boise and the fve
other permittees, Ted has a working knowledge
of the Citys permit and the programs developed
under the permit. Todd currently serves as the
project manager for multiple local MS4 support
contracts. He has also served as project manager
for the consulting services associated with the
NPDES Phase I permit for the cities of Boise and
Garden City and the Phase II permit for the cities
of Meridian, Eagle, and Nampa. In this role Ted
has managed numerous projects from permit
application through annual reporting and permit
reapplication or termination support.

Project Approach
BCs project management
approach is based on our
experience successfully
managing local on-call
contracts with the cities of
Boise, Meridian, and Nampa,
as well as regional experience
with Seattle Public Utilities
(SPU) and Pierce County,
Washington. From initial
scoping through project
completion, our project
management approach
emphasizes clear and
frequent communication
that enables us to address
issues that may arise and help
ensure that we meet the Citys
critical success factors for
each project. During task order
initiation, BC will work with the
City to develop a project team,
scope, schedule, and budget
tailored to your needs. Our
experienced team will identify
areas of uncertainty inherent
in the project and work with
the City to include appropriate
assumptions.
As part of the project scoping,
BC will work with the City to
identify the best technical
experts for each task. As a
priority client for BC, the City
has access the BCs full suite
of technical experts.
ADVANCING Budget and Schedule Compliance
BC implements a world-class project controls system for all projects.
This system, known as WorkSmart, integrates BCs technical,
accounting, and human resources information systems through an
interactive Web-based platform. WorkSmart is BCs one-stop shop for
all project managers and team members for scope, schedule, budget,
and QA/QC management.
Tracking and Reporting. BC will use WorkSmart to generate monthly
project reports that provide an overview of project schedule and
budget status. The monthly reporting will help assess the projects
schedule progress alongside its budget and scope performance, which
will help the team identify and mitigate potential slippage early. These
reports will be discussed with the City on a monthly basis.
Change Management. Project changes happen; managing them
effectively is the key to successful project delivery. Ted and his team
will actively identify and track any project changes and assess their
impact. When a change is required, BC will work closely with the City
before the scope is changed or additional budget is spent.
ADVANCING Quality Control
BCs approach to quality combines management, people, and
procedures to ensure the delivery of quality products and service to
our clients. Our QC activities actually begin prior to delivery of our
proposals and run through the planning, design, and construction
phases of the project. On every project, BC implements our established
QA/QC procedures to ensure that all calculations, reports, and
technical memoranda are reviewed by senior professionals who are
experts in their respective felds. Our approach focuses on promoting
creativity by use of the best brains philosophy for every task, while
maintaining an uncompromising commitment to quality.
ADVANCING Team Communications
BC will actively communicate with all project team members
throughout the course of the project, and City staff will have direct
access to Ted and BCs technical experts to stay apprised of the latest
information regarding the status of the project.
Personnel
Our team understands the needs to provide timely response to client requests and to balance and
prioritize multiple assignments. With a readily available company of talented professionals and
experienced subconsultant team members, we can effciently manage and deliver a wide variety of
projects. We have assembled a team of professionals with on-call contract experience, specifc technical
expertise in different areas associated with stormwater, and a history of delivering on innovative and
successful projects. All of our experts have experience in the Treasure Valley; this knowledge and
experience means a very short learning curve and translates into real savings to the City. In addition to
their roles and responsibilities, we have included some example projects from the past 5 years. *Indicates

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience providing comprehensive
program support for NPDES Phase II permitting
BC is currently providing the City of Nampa MS4
Support Services associated with the MCMs
identifed in the permit. Included in this project
are the establishment of study design, review,
and analysis documents including the Stormwater
Monitoring Plan (SWMP) and Quality Assurance
Program Plan. In addition to developing these
plans, BC is responsible for managing and
developing the period-specifc Discharge Monitoring
Reports (DMRs) that culminate in an annual
Stormwater Monitoring Report, which requires the
development of pollutant loads emanating from the
entire MS4. BC assisted in the development of the
Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
Program Plan, which included a stormwater system
inventory, inspection, and data tracking program.
As part of the Post-Construction Stormwater
Management Program Plan, BC supported the City in
training City staff and the development community
on the impacts of the program. At the end of each
permit year BC assists the City in compiling data
collected under the NPDES permit and presenting
them in an annual report, which the City uses to
demonstrate pollution prevention and reduction
efforts. Recently, the City and BC developed
a reapplication strategy that prioritizes highly
effective program components for inclusion in the
renewed NPDES permit.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience supporting
the development of the stormwater program
associated with the Citys NPDES permit
BC is currently providing MS4 support
for the NPDES Phase I permit, effective
in February 2013. In the frst year of the
permit, responsibilities included facilitation
of the permittees (cities of Boise and
Garden City, ACHD, ITD, Drainage District
3, and Boise State University) approach
to the new monitoring and evaluation
criteria defned in the permit. Included
in this process were the development of
level-of-service goals for the program and
the establishment of a decision matrix
employed by the permittees to track
and resolve decisions. In addition, BC
supported the development of the Program
Monitoring and Evaluation Plan, Quality
Assurance Plan, and SWMPincluding
monitoring approach, site selection,
and installation. In a continuation of
this project in 2014, BC has supported
the development of the SWMP, DMRs,
Structural Controls Monitoring Plan, and
Dry Weather Outfall Monitoring Plan. In
addition, BC is supporting in stormwater
monitoring and reporting requirements,
database migration of historical stormwater
data, identifcation and implementation
of a stormwater database, evaluation of
pollutant loads associated with DMRs,
QA/QC of data collection efforts, and
stormwater monitoring training for ACHD
and BC staff.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience providing innovative stormwater
solutions for SPU
In 2012, the EPA issued guidelines for integrated
planning to help municipalities comply with its Clean
Water Act wastewater and stormwater requirements
more effciently. The City of Seattle subsequently
negotiated a Consent Decree that allows the City to
propose an Integrated Plan for addressing its stormwater
and wastewater permit requirements. The plan would
allow SPU to defer certain combined sewer overfow
(CSO) projects and instead implement stormwater
measures, provided that SPU can clearly demonstrate
that they will result in signifcantly greater water
quality benefts.
Using the CSO models BC had previously developed,
the BC team estimated the pollutant load reductions
for 6 candidate CSO detention projects and 10 diverse
stormwater projects. Our team used the model results,
together with existing receiving water data, to evaluate
the reductions in human and ecological exposures
associated with each candidate stormwater and
CSO project.
The BC team then helped SPU rank the projects based
on fnancial, environmental, and social impacts and
benefts using Multi-Objective Decision Analysis (MODA).
The MODA results were also used to prepare the cost/
beneft analysis required by the Consent Decree. Based
on these analyses, SPU selected a combination of
gray, green, and programmatic stormwater projects to
implement and low-frequency, low-volume CSO detention
projects to defer. The selected stormwater projects
should provide much greater reductions in pollutant
loads and exposures than the deferred CSO projects.
BC then helped SPU prepare a concise document for
submittal to EPA and the Washington State Department
of Ecology.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience in local TMDL
development and implementation support and NPDES
permit negotiation
In the role of program manager, BC has been
responsible for regulatory compliance and
negotiations for the City of Nampas Wastewater
Program. This has required heavy involvement in
both the Citys NPDES permit negotiations and the
Lower Boise River TMDL. BC served as the primary
point of contact with EPA during the NPDES permit
negotiations for the Nampa WWTP. Through
our early evaluation of the Citys data and EPAs
proposed limits, BC was able to develop a permit
negotiation strategy that resulted in less stringent
limits for the City. BC has also been a key resource
both to Nampa and to IDEQ for the development
of the Lower Boise River TMDL, providing guidance
on scientifcally sound and cost-effcient methods
for meeting water quality goals. Through this
experience, BCs technical experts, such as
Clifton Bell and Mike Milne, have gained a deep
understanding of the Treasure Valleys water
quality challenges.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience delivering an industry-
leading approach to TMDL development
The development of scientifcally sound nutrient
reduction goals continues to be one of the highest-
profle challenges facing states and the regulated
community. Efforts to set reduction targets
must recognize that receiving waters response
to nutrient load often depends on site-specifc
characteristics. In 2012, the Water Environment
Research Foundation awarded a grant to the team
of BC, LimnoTech, and Tufts University to develop
guidance and tools for model-based approaches
to derive site-specifc water quality goals. The
team developed a Nutrient Impact Modeling
Toolbox that states and NPDES permit holders
can use to link nutrient management strategies to
ecological response indicators for aquatic systems.
The Toolbox is designed to help users to select
modeling approaches based on a variety of factors,
including type of system, response indicators of
interest, and data availability. The Toolbox also
helps users understand the limitations and proper
regulatory applications associated with the various
modeling options. In addition to simple and
complex eutrophication models, the team also has
developed screening-level or hybrid (technology-
based and water quality-based) approaches that
might be applicable in cases where data or cost
limit the feasibility of more complex methods.
The guidance document includes a stepwise
process for both developing nutrient models and
interpreting the results to derive numeric nutrient
criteria or TMDL targets. The Toolbox will lower the
barrier for site-specifc approaches and provide
a viable alternative to other methods for deriving
defensible nutrient-related goals.

Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA)
was concerned that this approach does not
recognize fundamental differences between how
nutrients and toxics affect receiving waters. In
response, NACWA commissioned BC to perform an
independent review of which elements of federal
toxics-based permitting methods are valid or invalid
for nutrients, or would require modifcations to
be valid for nutrients. The review also sought to
identify potential alternatives where warranted, and
to facilitate ongoing discussions with agencies and
stakeholders on regulatory solutions for nutrients.

VALUE TO BOISE // Treasure Valley water quality
trading support
BC is leading the City of Boises enhanced
treatment project in which the Dixie Drain facility
will remove phosphorus from a nonpoint source
agricultural culvert draining 30,000 acres. This
phosphorus will offset that which will need to be
removed at the Citys West Boise WWTF, providing
a more cost-effective and environmentally
benefcial means of total phosphorus removal
compared to the cost of upgrading the West
Boise WWTF. The work has included coordination
with key stakeholders within the Treasure Valley,
developing and testing a conceptual wetland
design, and planning and design of the treatment
process. As part of the project, BC supported the
City of Boises efforts to negotiate the NPDES
permit for the West Boise WWTF and provided
guidance on water quality trading and offsets.
The project will be one of the frst of its kind in
the United States, and it could lead to more cost-
effective watershed-based approaches for meeting
TMDL limits.

VALUE TO BOISE // Water quality modeling to meet
TMDL requirements
BC is developing a comprehensive plan to reduce
sediment and associated pollutant loads in the
Clarks Creek basin in Puyallup and Pierce County.
The creek provides habitat for fve species of
salmon and water for two fsh hatcheries. The
creek has a TMDL for bacteria and a dissolved
oxygen TMDL under development; both Pierce
County and the City of Puyallup will need to
comply with these TMDLs. The project involves
geomorphologic analyses; HSPF modeling to
simulate fows and pollutant loads; source
identifcation and prioritization; HEC-RAS modeling
and incipient motion analyses to evaluate channel
erosion; development of control measures
(LID, regional, in-channel); and development
of a comprehensive Action Plan to guide
implementation by the Tribe, City, and County.
Stakeholder involvement is a key component of
this EPA-funded project.
ADVANCING Innovative Approaches to Meeting Water Quality Goals
and water quality-based effuent limitations for
nutrients should differ from toxics permitting in
profound ways. BC outlined specifc modifcations
or replacements of toxics-based methods including
the use of longer averaging periods, different critical
conditions, different application of mixing concepts,
and a preference for load-response predictions
over the use of default concentration targets.
This review document described an overarching
framework for nutrient permitting that emphasized
watershed-based approaches and fexible, science-
based methods for deriving waste load allocations.
NACWA is currently using the results of this project
to facilitate ongoing discussions with EPA and other
stakeholders on regulatory solutions for nutrients.

Why Shes the Best Fit
> Previous experience working

Health District
> Experience that overlaps
all areas of solid waste
management, from
planning to construction of
capital projects
Relevant Experience within the Past 5 Years
For the City of Nampas police shooting range site,
Katie led the solid waste facility permitting process
for an existing 14-acre unlined construction and
demolition (C&D) landfll, which was co-located
with a former gravel pit and shooting range. The
project was unique in that the proposed landfll
was located directly over an unpermitted disposal
area. To defne the two units, BC designed a
separation layer such that the new permitted
landfll would operate as a separate unit from
underlying unpermitted waste. Katie prepared
permit applications and worked with the City of
Nampa, IDEQ, and Southwest Health District to
obtain approvals for an Interim Operations Plan,
Siting Application, Operations Plan, and Design
Plan in support of Voluntary Consent Order
(VCO) requirements.
BCs work at this site also included an
investigation of lead contamination at the
former shooting range, and fugitive air emission
management. Groundwater monitoring wells
were installed for assessing soil and groundwater
conditions proximal to the landfll boundary, and
an aquifer analysis was performed to determine
hydrogeologic conditions. Site hydrogeology was
complex due to multiple irrigation canals proximal
to the property, adjacent gravel pits, and adjacent
groundwater supply wells.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience with comprehensive studies
of solid waste management costs
Richland County has an active Class II landfll, two
closed Class II landflls, two closed Class III landflls,
a permit for a wood chipping and compost operation,
and a full-service recycling facility. In 2011, BC
was selected to perform a comprehensive study of
all solid waste operations at the Caughman Road
facility. The study was completed in 8 months and
included a Class II waste stream analysis, waste
compaction evaluation and capacity analysis, cost
analysis, examination of the cost benefts to divert
Class I waste from the waste stream going into
the Class II landfll to a wood chipping/compost
operation, analysis of the closure/post-closure costs
of the Class II landfll, and determination of unit
costs to operate the entire facility as it relates to
landfll capacity.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience with high-level solid
waste planning
The Maui County 2009 Integrated Solid Waste
Management Plan recommended that the County
Solid Waste Division procure a materials recovery
facility (MRF) to reduce the amount of C&D waste
that is landflled on Maui. At the Countys request,
BC conducted a study to assess whether it was
feasible for the County to construct and operate
a publicly owned C&D MRF. BC estimated C&D
disposal tonnage and waste stream component
volumes based on a waste stream assessment
and compared these to the existing and
future C&D processing and disposal capacity
on Maui. This study included a visual waste

City of Boise
characterization (formerly said VWC) of the self-haul
C&D waste stream at the Central Maui Landfll and
Olowalu Transfer Station. The goals of the waste
stream characterization were to identify individual
components of residential C&D waste and to
quantify these items through visual estimation
and approximate material densities. The results of
the characterization included an estimate of the
average daily self-haul C&D tonnage disposed by
residents as well as the component material types
and volumes. BC developed the characterization
protocol, trained feld staff, collected feld data
at two self-haul sites, and analyzed results. The
study also included an assessment of existing and
planned C&D disposal and processing capacity
via phone surveys and staff interviews, as well as
feasibility-level cost evaluations of constructing and
operating a residential C&D MRF or a combined
commercial and residential C&D MRF using the
results of the waste stream assessment, County
planning projections, and previous planning
studies done by others. Based on study results, BC
recommended that the Solid Waste Division not
proceed with a County-fnanced C&D MRF project.
BC also recommended that the County continue
to encourage and support the development of
new private-sector C&D facilities, including a C&D
MRF and/or a C&D landfll. This study allowed
Maui County to determine the potential cost of
constructing and operating a publicly owned MRF
for C&D waste generated on Maui. Maui County
gained an understanding of the types and volumes
of self-haul C&D waste disposed by residents to
help plan future recycling and disposal options.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience managing a tight budget
while addressing the needs of a long-term monitoring
program for a County-funded solid waste facility
BC has been providing groundwater monitoring
activities for the Hub Butte and Old Buhl
(Twin Falls West) landflls in Twin Falls County
and Milner Butte landfll in Cassia County.
Groundwater monitoring was conducted in
accordance with requirements promulgated by
EPA 40 CFR Part 258, and the State of Idaho
Solid Waste Facilities Act Chapter 74, Title 39
(39.74 10). Tasks associated with groundwater
monitoring activities at this site included
measurement of static groundwater levels in
monitoring wells, collection of groundwater
samples from monitoring wells for laboratory
analysis of Appendix I (40 CFR Part 258)
constituents, statistical analysis of the laboratory
results of groundwater sampling, and preparation
of an annual report that summarized the
groundwater sampling results.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience using our national
experience with solid waste characterization, permitting,
design, operations, and closure to comply with an IDEQ VCO
including permitting the active but un-permitted facility
BC assisted the City of Nampa with permitting an
active un-permitted non-municipal solid waste
facility that was determined to have elevated metals
concentrations. BC designed a comprehensive
investigation plan consisting of numerous soil
borings, methane monitoring wells, and groundwater
monitoring wells to evaluate subsurface conditions
and extent of contamination (evaluated for
hydrocarbons, chlorinated and non-chlorinated
compounds, pesticides, herbicides, and metals)
if encountered. A detailed investigation report
that presented elevated metal concentrations
in the soil at the site was submitted to IDEQ for
review and approval. BC determined that the most
practical and cost-effective method for remediation
was placing an impermeable material across the
contaminated area, which allowed for risking away
the contamination concern.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience with local, large
wastewater program implementation
BC serves as the program manager for the City
of Nampas $100 million Wastewater Program
and is tasked with overall implementation of the
Program. BC has built on the Citys initial concept
from program implementation and has developed
a programmatic approach that incorporates risk
management, asset management, and long-term
planning. By integrating these important concepts
into the program management approach, BC has
helped the City reduce overall capital costs while
effectively managing program risk. To this end,
BC has used the BCE process as the decision-
making tool for the entire program. As part of the
program, FCS Group, working with BC and RBCI,
recently completed a cost-of-service rate study
for the City of Nampas wastewater utility. BC and
FCS Group also analyzed detailed customer data
and assessed customer class usage patterns to
develop strength distinctions in the commercial
rates, as well as rates by constituent component
for the Citys many large industrial customers.
Additionally, FCS Group and BC evaluated the
impact of potential funding options including
general obligation bond, revenue bond, and cash
funding.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience assisting with reuse program
implementation
BC led the development and implementation of the
LOTT Wastewater Resource Management Planan
innovative program to provide sustainable regional
wastewater services in the North Thurston County
Growth Management Area. The program relies on a
combination of water recycling and conservation to
provide new capacity. Beginning in 1995, LOTT began
its shift from disposal and reacting to regulatory
orders toward public education and resource recycling
programs. BC built, led, and managed a team of
organizations on behalf of LOTT. We strategized
development of the planning program with LOTT,
organized and led public meetings, led the technical
analyses and program implementation, and worked
directly with the LOTT executive director and elected
offcials on the board. By incrementally adding
system capacity, LOTT saved more than $40 million
in total program costs, compared to securing marine
discharge. The integrated process of continually
managing the available capacity consistent with
public values has allowed LOTT to adapt to changing
conditions without excess fnancial repercussions.

BC developed a Master Plan of the Budd Inlet
WWTP to perform an optimization evaluation of the
condition and capacity of the Budd Inlet WWTP to
best meet future system needs and maximize
its discharge capacity. BC assessed the facility
operations, specifcally key process areas for
the biological nutrient removal and the ability
to effectively achieve effuent nitrogen levels
below 2 milligrams per liter (mg/L) total inorganic
nitrogen (TIN) 7 months a year. The results of
these studies were conveyed to plant staff in a
workshop format, which was also used to develop
a consensus on plant re-rating. BC incorporated
an evaluation and calibration of the process
model BioWin for the newly installed biological
nutrient control facility, which allowed increased
confdence in the prediction of future treatment
capacity under different fow scenarios proposed
by the LOTT Alliance. BC continues to assess and
update the process model to address potential
changes in nutrient levels within the facility to
ensure treatment with the stringent treatment
requirements.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience providing in-depth

BC conducted a capacity assessment of the West
Boise WWTF to determine the upgrades required
to comply with stringent future phosphorus
discharge limits. Field investigations were
conducted including wastewater characterization;
stress testing of clarifers and solids handling
facilities; condition assessment; calibration of
hydraulic, secondary clarifer, and biological
process models; and plant-wide solids mass
balances. Whole-plant capacity rating charts were
developed from this detailed process analysis.
The charts were used to create a prioritized list
of plant upgrades to unlock treatment capacity
using a just-in-time approach for expansion to
accommodate additional future growth. This
study has allowed the City to implement a phased
plan for system upgrades, addressing the most
critical and capacity-limiting processes frst.

VALUE TO BOISE // Experience providing a systematic audit of environmental
regulation throughout public works to identify risk and exposure
The City of Nampa has numerous interactions with the environment
and environmental regulations. In order to formalize these
interactions, the City wanted to assess the current compliance
status with local, state, and federal regulations. The City wanted to
normalize an approach to manage the regulatory requirements in
order to reduce risk. The City asked BC for assistance in selecting
a program to identify, track, and proactively manage regulatory
requirements associated with City activities. The frst step in this
process was to conduct a gap analysis. A gap analysis identifes
open areas in an environmental program that needs to be bridged in
order to develop and implement an effective EMS by reviewing the
adequacy of existing systems, management reviews, and procedures.
ADVANCING Regulatory Risk Management
Miscellaneous Environmental Services | 11-6
Section 11: Miscellaneous Projects
City of Boise
Project Approach
BCs project management
approach is based on our
experience successfully
managing local on-call
contracts with the cities
of Boise, Meridian, and
Nampa, as well as regional
experience with Seattle
Public Utilities and Pierce
County, Washington. From
initial scoping through
project completion, our
project management
approach emphasizes clear
and frequent communication
that enables us to address
issues that may arise and
help ensure that we meet
the Citys critical success
factors for each project.
During task order initiation,
BC will work with the City
to develop a project team,
scope, schedule, and budget
tailored to your needs.
Our experienced team will
identify areas of uncertainty
inherent in the project and
work with the City to include
appropriate assumptions.
As part of the project
scoping, BC will work with
the City to identify the best
technical experts for each
task. As a priority client for
BC, the City has access the
BCs full suite of technical
experts.
ADVANCING Budget and Schedule Compliance
BC implements a world-class project controls system for all projects. This
system, known as WorkSmart, integrates BCs technical, accounting,
and human resources information systems through an interactive
Web-based platform. WorkSmart is BCs one-stop shop for all project
managers and team members for scope, schedule, budget, and QA/QC
management. Each project set up in WorkSmart contains a profle linked
to the critical components described and is available to any project team
member.
Tracking and Reporting. BC will use WorkSmart to generate monthly
project reports that provide an overview of project schedule and budget
status. The monthly reporting will help assess the projects schedule
progress alongside its budget and scope performance, which will help
the team identify and mitigate potential slippage early. These reports will
be discussed with the City on a monthly basis.
Change Management. Project changes happen; managing them
effectively is the key to successful project delivery. Rosemary, Ted, and
their teams will actively identify and track any project changes and
assess their impact. When a change is required, BC will work closely with
the City before the scope is changed or additional budget is spent.
ADVANCING Quality Control
BCs approach to quality combines management, people, and
procedures to ensure the delivery of quality products and service to our
clients. Our QC activities actually begin prior to delivery of our proposals
and run through the planning, design, and construction phases of
the project. On every project, BC implements our established QA/
QC procedures to ensure that all calculations, reports, and technical
memoranda are reviewed by senior professionals who are experts in
their respective felds. Our approach focuses on promoting creativity by
use of the best brains philosophy for every task, while maintaining an
uncompromising commitment to quality.
ADVANCING Team Communications
BC will actively communicate with all project team members throughout
the course of the project, and City staff will have direct access to
Rosemary, Ted, and BCs technical experts to stay apprised of the latest
information regarding the status of the project.

Hawks Prairie Satellite Reclamation Plant Design, LOTT Alliance, Lacey, Washington
Project Manager. Project conducts and coordinates permitting, EIS preparation, and design development and
contract document preparation for construction of a 1-mgd satellite reclamation plant in Lacey, ultimately
expandable to 5 mgd. The plant is designed to produce Class A reclaimed water using fine screening, high-
solids membrane bioreactor, and hypochlorite disinfection for direct reuse and groundwater recharge. Solids
are returned to the interceptor for processing at the central plant and odor control utilizes a multi-stage
process to achieve 3 odor units at the fence line. Design development was collaborated through LOTT staff
using core team meetings, workshops, and technology tours. In a unique approach, the design was based first
on the operations management strategy, and the instrumentation and control protocols prior to process
selection to meet effluent requirements. The plant is the first in a series of small increments of capacity
outlined in LOTTs Wastewater Resource Management Plan transition from an effluent disposal to a water
recycling program. The project included development of LOTT design standards for future facilities. The
satellite plants are located in and near residential and commercial neighborhoods to place the resource in
close proximity to large reclaimed water users and areas suitable for groundwater recharge. Actively involved
neighborhood groups in the design and architectural development process integrate to minimize community
concerns. Employed LEED Green Design techniques for energy savings and integration into the community.
Reclaimed Water and Odor Control Facilities Design, LOTT Wastewater Alliance, Olympia,
Washington
Project Manager. Project involves preliminary and final design services to prepare contract documents to
retrofit the South odor scrubber and install a 1.5-mgd Class A reclaimed water production capacity at the Budd
Inlet WWTP in Olympia. The $4.2M project strategically uses plant area on a limited site to upgrade odor
control capabilities and add ultimately 5 mgd of reclaimed water production for direct reuse in downtown
Olympia. Odor control facilities were raised above ground to improve operation and maintenance, and comply
with electrical code requirements. The vacated space was retrofitted below to provide water storage and
distribution pumping capacity. Worked closely with LOTT staff through core team meetings and design
workshops to ensure this critical plant area.
Water Quality and Stormwater Investigations
Budd Inlet Scientific Study, LOTT Clean Water Alliance, Olympia, Washington
Project Manager. Conducted a multidisciplinary 3-year water quality investigation of Budd Inlet in south Puget
Sound. The $3.3 million investigation included an intensive 14-month field monitoring program and
development of a proprietary water quality model in collaboration with the Washington State Department of
Ecology, University of Washington, AuraNova, Evans Hamilton, J.E. Edinger, and others to address total
maximum daily load (TMDL) issues in this water body.
The water quality and flow model was developed with national peer review to address dissolved oxygen in the
water column and demonstrated the critical role of biomass, sunlight, and algae speciation in determining
water quality. Also a critical finding was defining the role of the sediment nutrient flux. Field investigations and
modeling demonstrated that nutrient inventorying did not occur, thus opening the opportunity to seasonal cost-
saving alternatives. Developed an innovative approach for modeling surface water flow rates from ungauged
streams based on a limited sample and regional precipitation records. The results of the investigations were
used to negotiate changes to the LOTT Alliance National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)
permit and save more than $40 million in avoided capital costs.

Drainage community of practice and has supported surface water projects for BC offices throughout the U.S.

Clarks Creek Sediment Reduction Study, Puyallup Tribe of Indians,
Puyallup, Washington
Project Engineer. High sediment loads are a key issue for the lower portions of
Clarks Creek, where sediment deposition has impacted salmon spawning and
reduced flow conveyance. Nathan evaluated stream hydraulics and sediment
transport mechanics for the main stem of Clarks Creek and each of its major
tributaries. He also performed flow frequency analyses to examine stream flow
peaks, durations, and the relative shift from natural conditions that occurs as the
watershed becomes more urbanized. Building on these results, Nathan identified
specific sediment sources and developed conceptual design alternatives for
sediment reduction.
Nisqually River Basin Plan, Pierce County Surface Water Management,
Tacoma, Washington
Project Engineer. In Phase 1, Nathan compiled drainage and infrastructure data,
reviewed existing studies, conducted interviews, and assisted with public
meetings. Problems relating to flooding, drainage, water quality, and habitat were
identified and screened, and a database was created to manage the information
collected on each problem. In Phase 2, Nathan conducted additional data
collection and field evaluations at problem sites. Nathan also performed hydraulic
analyses and developed mitigation alternatives consisting of a wide range of
programmatic recommendations and capital improvements. Recommendations
contained in the plan will be used guide surface water management and identify
projects for the Countys capital facilities plan.
Flood Vulnerability Study, Eagle Sewer District, Eagle, Idaho

for surface water management facilities including culverts, sedimentation basins, riprap energy dissipators,
plunge pool energy dissipators, and flow diffusers/spreaders.
Stormwater Management Plan for Redevelopment of Urbanized Areas, City of Auburn, Washington
Project Manager. Nathan is currently managing a multi-phase planning effort evaluating stormwater flow
control options for the highly urbanized areas of Auburn. Phase 1 consisted of modeling and alternatives
analyses for two redevelopment projects in the citys downtown core. Phase 2 evaluated flow control options
for two different areas of the city: the Green River and Mill Creek drainage basins. This phase included
correspondence with the Washington Department of Ecology discussing requirements for implementing basin-
specific flow control criteria. Phase 3 is the development of the Mill Creek Basin Plan, which will include
detailed hydrologic, hydraulic, and geomorphic assessments of the Mill Creek Basin. One of the key outcomes
from this plan will be the development of basin-specific flow control criteria.
Pine Creek Hydrology Study, Tehama County, California
Analytical Engineer. The California Regional Water Quality Control Board requested that a small gravel quarry
in Tehama County meet specific Waste Discharge Requirements (WDRs) for existing and planned mining
operations. These WDRs referred to the need to capture surface water runoff for hydrologic events of various
magnitudes. To address these issues Nathan developed an HSPF hydrologic model of the drainage basin.
Historical precipitation and evapotranspiration records were used to perform hydrologic simulations and
generate long-term runoff hydrographs, which were routed into storage ponds to evaluate pond capacity and
demonstrate compliance with the WDRs.
Comprehensive Stormwater Drainage Plan, City of Auburn, Washington
Project Manager. Nathan managed and was the primary author of the stormwater utilitys master plan,
completed in late 2009. Nathan and his team worked with the City to develop a working set of levels of service
(LOS) that defined specific quantifiable service goals for the utility. Using the LOS as a guide, our team
conducted detailed evaluations and analyses, including asset inventories, hydraulic modeling, pump station
assessments, and economic life-cycle analyses. The results of these evaluations led to recommendations and
an implementation plan, elements of which included capital improvements for the Citys 6-year and 20-year
capital improvement program (CIP), monitoring recommendations, an NPDES compliance work plan, and future
activities for improving utility operation.
Yarrow Creek Tributary Stream Stabilization, Bellevue, Washington
Project Engineer. Nathan developed a HEC-HMS model for the Yarrow Creek tributary drainage. The results
were used to develop design flow rates including the 100-year flow rate for culvert replacement and half the 2-
year flow for the low-flow restored channel. Nathan also developed a HEC-RAS model and performed hydraulic
design evaluations of key project components, such as a high flow bypass structure and energy dissipators.
Upper Big Butte Creek Basin Hydrology, City of Medford, Jackson County, Oregon
Lead Modeler. The City of Medford and Eagle Point Irrigation District maintain and operate a water collection
system in the Upper Big Butte Creek Basin including a storage reservoir, three diversions, and a pumping
station. Nathan developed a basin-scale model of the 180-square-mile Upper Big Butte Creek watershed to
evaluate mean daily stream flows, seasonal snow water equivalent (snowpack), and reservoir storage levels.
Nathan used HEC-HMS to build the model and developed 60 years of input data for long-term simulations.
Stillwater Creek Hydrology Study, Redding, California
Analytical Engineer. Nathan developed a HEC-HMS hydrologic model of two drainage basins encompassing
two future mining sites. The model was developed using a combination of SCS and USBR methods. Calibration
and verification of the model was performed using a combination of in-field flow measurements, flood

Tri-County Agricultural Area (TCAA) Nutrient Reduction and
Implementation Strategy, St. Johns River Water Management District
(SJRWMD), Florida
Project Manager/Engineer of Record. This work is in support of the Lower St.
Johns River Basin Algal Initiative for the SJRWMD. The primary goal is to
reduce total phosphorus (TP) loads entering the Lower St. Johns River (LSJR)
by 84 metric tons per year to meet TMDL and Basin Management Action Plan
(BMAP) requirements. The TCAA contributes approximately 31 metric tons per
year to the LSJR. The TCAA has an area of approximately 600 square miles,
including 61 square miles of agriculture. The primary objective of this project is
to develop a nutrient reduction and water conservation strategy, using BMPs,
to maximize phosphorus and nitrogen reduction and improve water
conservation within the TCAA while minimizing cost and implementation
timelines. The following list of potential BMPs was identified during Phase 1:
wet detention, infiltration basins, constructed wetlands, regional water reuse,
edge of farm water reuse, chemical injection, conveyance BMPs, in-field
agricultural water management BMPs, in-field agricultural nutrient
management BMPs, and land acquisitionremoving agricultural lands from
production. BC developed simplified sizing, costing, and performance functions
to evaluate each of the structural and nonstructural BMPs. A BMP Optimization
Model (BMPOM) was developed that uses the simplified functions in
conjunction with geographic information system (GIS)-based land use
information to estimate the required land area, implementation or construction
cost, annual O&M cost, life-cycle cost, TP load reduction, water conservation
volume, and life-cycle cost per mass TP removed and per acre-foot of water
conserved. Multiple workshops were held with District staff/regulatory
agencies/local stakeholders to obtain consensus on the recommended
solution.

management program in the state. A key feature of this program is the Watershed Improvement Plan (WIP),
which is a stormwater master plan targeting watersheds with impaired aquatic biota and water quality. The
primary objective of each WIP is the development of a watershed-specific capital improvement plan (CIP) that
consists of stream restoration projects, stormwater detention facility retrofits, and other BMPs. BC has
developed comprehensive WIPs for the Sweetwater Creek, Upper Yellow River, Lower Yellow River, No Business
Creek, Alcovy, Mulberry, Apalachee, and the Chattahoochee tributary watersheds, totaling over 60 percent of
the Countys land area. Implementation of these projects will meet the goal of the Watershed Protection Plan
(WPP), which is to improve watershed conditions and help Gwinnett County meet regulatory requirements,
including NPDES Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Phase I, TMDL, Metropolitan North Georgia
Water Planning District, and state water quality standards. BC has also prepared construction documents for
many stormwater treatment and stream restoration projects identified in the WIPs including Ronald Reagan
Park/Bankston Creek, Bromolow Creek, Lake Claiborne, Spalding Square, Parkspring Terrace, Lake, Pounds
Lake, and Lake Wethersfield. BC also provides bidding and construction phase services for projects designed
by BC.
Demand Services for Continuing NPDES MS4 Watershed/Support Stormwater, DeKalb County
Department of Watershed Management, Georgia
Technical Lead/Engineer of Record. DeKalb County recently received a new Phase I NPDES MS4 permit, which
was issued by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. This permit required that the County develop an
enhanced stormwater management program. BC worked closely with the County to develop a new Stormwater
Management Program/Plan, which included a detailed approach to managing stormwater from new
development as well as existing development. As part of the overall stormwater program requirements, BC also
evaluated all impaired water segments and TMDLs in the County; revised the County Watershed Protection
Plan; developed a Countywide (271 square miles) TMDL Implementation Plan; developed a 5-Year Capital
Improvement Program; prepared a watershed-focused geodatabase; created new standard operating
procedures and standardized forms for performing inspections and audits; and prepared a comprehensive and
streamlined stormwater, surface water quality, and biological monitoring program for the County considering
both wastewater and stormwater permit needs. BC also evaluated and prioritized all subwatersheds in the
county and developed a standardized methodology for preparing Watershed Improvement and Management
Plans for each Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 12 subwatershed in the county. BC then completed a detailed
assessment of all stream segments down to the 25-acre catchment for the highest-priority subwatershed. BC
also designed two stormwater retrofit and stream restoration projects including green infrastructure elements.

Experience Summary
Dr. Jeffrey S. Johnson has more than 23 years of experience in design and implementation of surface and
subsurface hydrogeologic, geologic, and environmental investigations throughout the Northwest, Rocky
Mountains, and Midwest, and has coordinated with respective state agencies, U.S. Bureau of Land
Management (BLM), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers (USACE), and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). His areas of expertise include hydrogeologic
and geologic assessments of existing and proposed mines and solid waste facilities as well as private and
public water supply studies, groundwater modeling, petroleum and hazardous waste investigations,
remediation, environmental property assessments, and Section 404/401 permitting. He has also served as a
visiting instructor with the Department of Geology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Jeff has significant experience within the Northwest with borehole logging (rotary, down-hole hammer, and
auger drilling), surface and subsurface geologic interpretations through map and cross-section development,
structural geology, geophysics, geophysical logging, vibrating wireline piezometers (VWPs), well design and
construction, and subsurface sampling.

Solid Waste Facility Groundwater and Methane Investigation, City of
Nampa, Idaho
Project Manager and Senior Hydrogeologist. Jeff led the investigation of an
unpermitted solid waste facility for the City of Nampa. The waste area occurs
in a former gravel pit that extends approximately 60 feet below ground level.
No known records are available to characterize waste disposed of in the pit.
Brown and Caldwell (BC) worked with the Idaho Department of Environmental
Quality (IDEQ) and the City to design an investigation plan to characterize soil,
groundwater, and methane at the site. The investigation included multiple
groundwater monitoring wells and soil vapor extraction (SVE) wells.
Chemicals of concern included volatile organic compounds and metals; thus,
a laboratory suite of analyses was chosen to identify these chemicals.
Potential receptors surrounding the landfill included residential housing with
private domestic wells proximal to the site and surface water bodies.
Police Shooting Range Investigation, City of Nampa, Idaho
Project Manager and Senior Hydrogeologist. The Citys Police Department
used a portion of a mined gravel pit as a shooting range and temporary
storage of vehicles and other equipment. The area had not been used for
approximately 10 years. The pit was approximately 14 acres in area and
presumed to be around 60 percent full of debris. BC assessed soil,
groundwater, and vapor for possible releases from the pit. Specific efforts
included installing groundwater monitor wells and soil vapor gas wells,
testing of soils, monitoring and sampling, and reporting. Specific
subcontractors for the project provided laboratory analysis, well drilling, direct
push services, and surveys. Initial data collected by BC suggest that closure
may require only a cover material with no active remediation. Additional
monitoring is occurring to substantiate this closure requirement.
Wastewater Treatment Groundwater Infiltration Study, City of
Nampa, Idaho
Principal Geologist/Hydrogeologist. BC represents the City of Nampa as its
program manager for the Citys wastewater treatment plant program. Jeff has
been responsible for developing a program to evaluate land application/
infiltration for management of the Citys wastewater effluent (estimated to
reach 18 million gallons per day [mgd] by 2033). Jeff oversaw an initial

geographic information system (GIS) program designed to evaluate areas with geology conducive to water
infiltration. Based on this effort, multiple areas were identified for drilling and testing. Jeff prepared a drilling
and sampling work plan consisting of multiple test holes for evaluating subsurface geology and hydrogeology.
Based on data collected from field work, Jeff oversaw the creation of a MODFLOW groundwater model to
determine suitability of the sites for infiltrating 18 mgd of effluent. Infiltration is regulated by the IDEQ and
Idahos Groundwater Rule, and Jeff has frequently coordinated with IDEQ on data collected for facilitating
permit approval and assisted with City public involvement and education programs for informing citizens on
infiltration as a management tool for wastewater effluent. Additional subsurface testing, including aquifer
pump tests and single well tests, is planned for further site characterization.
Infiltration Study, City of Meridian, Idaho
Project Manager and Principal Geologist/Hydrogeologist. The City of Meridian is evaluating options for
managing its projected 20-year wastewater treatment plant Class A effluent of approximately 14 mgd. One
potential option is land application/infiltration. Jeff was the project manager and lead technical resource for
developing the scope of work to systematically evaluate this option. Included in the scope was an initial GIS
program designed to evaluate areas with geology, hydrogeology, water quality, and land use conducive to water
infiltration. Roadway site evaluation also occurred to view surface water infiltration in gravel pits during and
immediately following rain events. A technical memorandum was prepared that presented the scope of work,
summarized findings, and presented recommended next steps. The evaluation indicated that infiltration is a
viable option for treated wastewater management, and upon project completion, the City of Meridian
concurred with the findings and proceeded into a treated wastewater effluent business case evaluation.
Water Resources Baseline Study, Proposed Rasmussen Valley Mine Project (RVMP), Nu-West
Industries, Inc., DBA Agrium Conda Phosphate Operations, Caribou County, Idaho
Groundwater Baseline Study Plan Project Manager/Technical Advisor. BC is performing as the first-party
contractor for the RVMP Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Agrium is using the first-party contractor
approach for collecting baseline data as a method to increase schedule and cost efficiency while maintaining
high data quality. BC completed the Groundwater and Surface Water Baseline Studies in cooperation with
BLM, USFS, IDEQ, Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG), and third-party contractor (ID Team). Jeff effectively
coordinated with technical experts within BC and the ID Team to prepare the Draft Groundwater Baseline
Study Plan, which included developing a Hydrogeologic Conceptual Site Model (HCSM) based on existing
publications and knowledge of surface water and groundwater resources within the phosphate district. The
study plan established the Water Resources Study Boundary and the preliminary HCSM. Based on the study
area HCSM, 19 groundwater monitoring wells were designed to evaluate geologic and hydrogeologic baseline
properties of the groundwater flow system within the proposed mine footprint, as well as ultimately serve as
Point-of-Compliance wells (the proposed dual purpose will likely save $150,000$250,000 or more in
additional monitoring wells and provide more consistent and accurate water quality information). The study
plan included the evaluation of surface water (Angus and Diamond creeks and the Blackfoot River) and
groundwater relationships and shallow, intermediate, and regional aquifer conditions. Optimized data sources
were achieved by utilizing VWPs for collecting multiple hydrostatic water levels within one borehole (both
exploration and monitoring wells), saving the expense of additional monitoring wells for collecting data, and
single-well aquifer testing for hydraulic parameters, eliminating the need for a second aquifer test. In addition
to coauthoring the study plan, Jeff oversaw the first 2 years of coordination with the ID Team for approval of
individual monitoring well programs (including negotiating access agreements with state and private
landowners and developing multiple technical memorandums prepared for BLM and USFS establishing
streamlined systematic steps for the collection of high-quality data), drilling and monitoring well installation,
geologic interpretation of borehole cuttings and gamma logs, data collection, and reporting.

Experience Summary
Dr. Stephen Koenigsberg brings more than three decades of environmental experience to his role as Director of
Advanced Technologies for Brown and Caldwells nationwide remediation practice. Steve is a leader in the
development and application of innovative in-situ and on site treatment protocols and author or co-author of more
than 175 technical articles, four books and four international patents focusing on remediation and environmental
biotechnology. In 1994, he co-founded Regenesis, where he was involved in the formulation and development of
products which have been applied to more than 17,000 sites worldwide. In addition to remediation-based solutions,
over the last decade, Dr. Koenigsberg has helped define the emerging field of expedited site closure. In 2004 he
was the co-recipient of a Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award and in 2010 received a Lifetime
Achievement Award from the Association for Environmental Health and Sciences Foundation (AEHS) for his
contributions to the environmental industry. Steve is an Adjunct Professor at the California State University at
Fullerton and sits on the Deans Advisory Council where he also served three terms as Chairman.

Experience Highlights
Dr. Koenigsberg has been involved in numerous in-situ and on site remediation
projects as a product vendor and consultant. He has initiated programs in
applying advanced diagnostic tools to secure MNA as a remedy saving clients
millions of dollars.
Steve developed a multi-faceted remediation product beta testing program to
fully evaluate performance criteria before major scale up on sites. The
components incorporated included tracking product distribution with laser
induced fluorescence, determination of mass flux/discharge, automated data
capture, transmission and three-dimensional imaging and the use of advanced
diagnostics (molecular biological tools and compound specific isotope analysis).
Dr. Koenigsberg developed and published a remediation strategy called
Controlled Vadose Zone Saturation and Remediation (CVSR). In one
application, which won an engineering award from the American Society of Civil
Engineers, a $25 M dig and haul projects costs were reduced by half with the
application of CVSR and other remediation strategies.
He secured the largest European liability transfer on record to date ($13MM)
involving a plant conversion in the UK. The project was noteworthy as
remediation strategies were substituted for full demolition that preserved
needed jobs in an economically depressed area.
Steve participated in a multi-year study at the Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory on chrome remediation at the Hanford Department of Energy site.
This study involved very early uses of enviro-tomography, stable isotope
probing and DNA microarray analysis.
Dr. Koenigsberg brought a unique bioremedial technology to the 2012 Olympic
Stadium site in London as an alternative treatment for ammonia and solvent
remediation with Olympic Management Committee funding in excess of $4M.
He co-developed and served on the Interstate Technology and Research
Council Team for Environmental Molecular Diagnostics.

of 36 mgd are directed to a dual-use chemically enhanced primary clarifier. Conducted tests to demonstrate
the feasibility of this design at King Countys South Plant, where jar testing showed that a combination of ferric
chloride and polyaluminum chloride in concert with a high molecular weight anionic dry polymer achieved up to
95 percent total suspended solids (TSS) removal at nearly 3.600 gallons per day per square foot. Designed
and constructed a pilot test facility at South Plant; operated this facility during the winter of 200405 and
verified this level of performance. The data from these trials were used to design and construct the full-scale
primary clarifiers at the new Brightwater plant. Assisted plant staff to start up the chemically enhanced primary
treatment (CEPT) clarifiers successfully in 2012. Unique features of the clarifiers included hydraulic design to

In addition to the aquifer test pumping well, 25 monitoring points were used to assess the extent and nature of
impacts from the test. An analysis of the raw data revealed the impacts of external influences on water levels;
the data were corrected for long-term linear trends, barometric pressure, and earth tides to provide a clean
data set impacted only by pumping stresses. Aquifer tests were analyzed by methods appropriate to the
aquifer response, inherent assumptions and conditions of the method, and conceptualization of the regional
Wells aquifer system.

Computer Model Integration: Salt River Valley (SRV) and Lower Hassayampa Sub-Basin Numerical
Groundwater Models, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and West Salt River Valley Central Arizona
Project Contractors (WESTCAPS), Arizona
Senior Hydrogeologist. BC performed Phase I of a modeling project that involved seaming together two
regional-scale groundwater models for the Salt River and Lower Hassayampa River Sub-Basins. Together,
these models simulate a regional aquifer that is approximately 3,000 square miles. The aquifer system is
contiguous between the two model domains, and where they overlap, artificial boundaries are used to simulate
impacts from the adjoining basin. Integration and seaming together of these two models will provide (1)
improved understanding of groundwater reserves and water level trends, and (2) a superior modeling tool to
support water providers and municipalities in both basins. Phase I tasks included the integration of the
numerical framework of the models, and test simulations to identify inconsistencies and develop a work plan
for future phases.
Groundwater Modeling in Support of a Designation of Assured Water Supply, Town of Buckeye,
Arizona
Project Manager and Modeling Lead. BC provided the technical and groundwater modeling support for the
Town of Buckeyes application for a Designation of Assured Water Supply. Procuring status as a designated
water provider is a key step in the Towns plan to meet the water resources management challenges in the
Lower Hassayampa Sub-Basin. Designated providers must demonstrate a 100-year water supply as part of the
hydrologic study required for the application; BC used the Lower Hassayampa Sub-Basin Groundwater Model to
develop predictive simulations of the growth in the region and assess the impacts of groundwater pumping on
the aquifer system.
