Aspen has a Blanket Purchase Agreement to provide on-call NEPA and other environmental support services to Western Area Power Administration’s Desert Southwest Region, which primarily encompasses southern California, southern Nevada, and Arizona. Under this contract, Aspen has completed NEPA review for more than 30 transmission system maintenance projects, including biological and cultural resources surveys as well as ESA, NHPA, and CWA permitting.

In addition to our in-house capabilities to provide these services, Aspen manages a team of local specialists to provide tailored responsiveness to Western’s needs. With this arrangement, Aspen is able quickly able to mobilize specialists to work with Native American Tribes or conduct protocol surveys for threatened and endangered species throughout Western’s service area.
