P3 Bridge Projects

Over the past few years WEC has provided natural resource services support for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.  WEC has worked on more than 70 different bridge projects across Pennsylvania.  Primary responsibilities include wetland identification and delineation plus rare, threatened, and endangered species conflict screening of additional work areas prior to construction at the sites.  WEC also provides supplemental natural resource support during the construction phase of projects that have requirements for protected species habitat protection.  Specifically, WEC oversees the installation of protective fencing around sensitive habitats and documents that it has been installed as approved through permit documents.  

Stream Restoration Project

In 2017 WEC worked with a local County Conservation District and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) on a stream restoration project that included fish habitat improvements and stream bank restoration along a 3,900-foot reach of a trout-stocked perennial stream.  The project was funded through the Pennsylvania Growing Greener program and was overseen by the Conservation District.  The PFBC was responsible for the habitat and stream bank improvement designs.  WEC prepared the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s permit application for the project.  Some specific tasks associated with the permit application submittal include: wetland identification and delineation, erosion and sediment control plan, protected species conflict screening, public coordination, and mapping/drawing preparation.

Wild Blue Lupine Habitat Restoration

WEC has been monitoring a population of the Pennsylvania-listed “rare” wild blue lupine (Lupinus perennis) on a public open-space property in Centre County, Pennsylvania since 2009.  The population went from over 100 stems with 64 flowering stems in the spring of 2009 to 9 total stems and no flowering stems in the spring of 2016.  Natural succession was determined to be the principal cause for the decline as the population is located along the edge of an agricultural field and woody species and competing herbs have been invading the area and competing for resources while also shading the wild blue lupine population.  In 2017, WEC manually removed woody vegetation and competing herbs from a 1,225 square-foot area where most of the wild blue lupine had previously been documented.  The work was a major success as 64 stems were counted in the late spring of 2017 and 14 of these stems had flowers.
