As Vice President of the Redwood Coast Energy Authority’s Board of Directors, Sheri Woo is working to increase public engagement as Humboldt County moves toward establishing a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program. A CCA is a program that allows residents to choose the source of their electricity, either from the publicly owned utility or the CCA.
Heidi Otten, an environmental resources engineering student studying at Humboldt State University, will be gaining experience and making contacts as SHN’s most recently hired intern, the first of three for Summer 2016. She will be based in the Eureka office, but to understand the numerous facets of civil and environmental engineering, she will be visiting projects based out of our Redding, Willits, and Coos Bay offices.
Staff of SHN and Streamline Planning Consultants (SPC) will conduct the required one-day in-class portion of the Qualified Industrial SWPPP Practitioner (QISP) training in Eureka, California, on Thursday, July 28, 2016. The purpose of the class is to prepare attendees for the QISP final exam, administered by the Sacramento State Office of Water Programs.
Having received our “FAA 333 Exemption” from the Federal Aviation Administration, we are greatly expanding our surveying and geographic information systems (GIS) services. The Exemption allows us to fly small unmanned aircraft to obtain aerial imagery, and certifies that we operate the unmanned aerial vehicles safely and with full responsibility and accountability for people’s safety and privacy.

SHN geologists investigated a known fault system to determine potential seismic hazards to the dam. Trenchscan technology was used to record images that were later digitally merged to create a single image of the entire trenched area.
Since 1995, SHN has performed environmental site investigation, hydrology studies, surveys, permitting, remediation design, and infrastructure evaluation and repair designs at 46 sites for CAL FIRE, the California state agency for real estate services (DGS-RESD), and the Division of the State Architect.
Beginning in 2012, SHN’s Biologist of Record managed a crew of 30 biologists that identified nesting locations of birds, prepared and implemented salmonid relocation and dewatering plans, conducted Northern Spotted Owl surveys, and prepared daily and quarterly reports documenting the interactions between construction activities and regulated biological resources.
With Ann Baker Landscape Architecture, SHN assisted in the design of the Museum’s new outdoor nature education facility, incorporating stormwater wetlands and bioretention areas, and encouraging groundwater recharge with infiltration trenches and permeable pavements.
