Terraphase Conducts ESA for Tualatin River Wildlife National Refuge
Terraphase recently conducted an Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) on a 51-acre parcel of agricultural and natural land adjacent to the Tualatin River in southeast Portland, Oregon. The project facilitated Metro’s acquisition of the property to help protect and restore water quality and fish and wildlife habitat. The acquired property connects Metro’s Heritage Pine Natural Area on the east to a site on the west that is part of the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.
Terraphase’s ESA services included a review of information gathered from federal, state, and local agencies; a review of historical documents; a review of previous environmental reports; a site reconnaissance visit with Metro staff; and interviews with current and past land owners. The work was conducted as part of an on-call contract to provide Metro with ESA services.
