Covington Group aimed to develop industrial complexes in Hesperia, California. Facing environmental challenges, including protecting endangered species, Dudek crafted an environmental impact report for the Hesperia Commerce Center, addressing impacts to endangered species, air quality, and traffic. The permits secured set a precedent for desert-area developments, emphasizing conservation in San Bernardino County.
Dudek worked with SANDAG to create a methodology that local jurisdiction planners and project managers can use to identify what climate adaptations and environmental justice strategies should be implemented and why. This methodology provides a deliberate process for understanding local vulnerabilities and values, as well as evaluating adaptation strategies based on equity, economic, environmental, and
Nestled in “America’s Salad Bowl,” the City of Gonzales grappled with wastewater compliance challenges related to commercial and industrial land uses. To address this and accommodate industrial expansion, Dudek partnered with major local food processors and the City, providing engineering evaluation and design for an enhanced wastewater collection and treatment system.
The City of Oxnard’s Tree Program Review provides a road map for the City to plan for the future of its trees. Dudek used a comprehensive approach to address issues associated with deferred maintenance, declining tree health, species diversity, out-of-date City tree policies, and infrastructure conflicts to develop the Tree Program Review.
In collaboration with SANDAG, Dudek helped develop a Public Works Plan (PWP)/Transportation and Resource Enhancement Program (TREP) for the North Coast Corridor (NCC) in San Diego. The plan, approved in 2014, aims to improve transportation and coastal resources through a $6-billion 40-year program. Dudek’s role included preparing Notices of Impending Development and Coastal Development Permits
The Los Angeles County Metro Area Plan (LAMAP) is a comprehensive planning effort for seven community planning areas within the urbanized core of the County of Los Angeles (County). Dudek helped the County prepare the plan, including a Historic Context Statement to inform and enhance the larger MAP project as it relates to historic resources.
When the Coachella Valley Water District constructed a new headworks at Water Reclamation Plant No. 7 (WRP 7), it was critical to remedy the lack of redundancy and diminishing reliability of the two-decades-old plant sludge thickening and dewatering system. Dudek provided professional engineering services to support the replacement of wastewater solids handling facilities at the
Dudek performed coordination planning for the City of Pomona’s Pomona ACTS (Activated for Community Transformation and Sustainability) Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Planning Grant efforts. To position the City for a future TCC implementation grant application, Dudek investigated available leverage funding, identified and assessed potential projects, assisted with engagement, and advanced priority transportation projects.
Dudek was contracted by the Chino Basin Desalter Authority (CDA) to design approximately 1,500 lineal feet of their Product Water Pipeline. The project comprised a new 30-inch-diameter cement-mortar lined and coated (CML&C) welded steel water pipeline and 36-inch DR9 high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipeline and appurtenances, including a 1,000-lineal-feet horizontal directional drilling (HDD) crossing beneath the
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (LA Metro) Foothill Gold Line will be a 9.1-mile, four-station light rail line spanning Glendora to Pomona, one of the most heavily used transit corridors in Eastern Los Angeles County. Dudek is working with the construction contractor to facilitate the protection of environmental resources including sensitive wildlife and
