     PROJECT WORK
Exhibit 3 summarizes representative projects we
have performed with elements similar to the work
the City of Albany anticipates under this contract.
Below we describe key projects in more detail and
provide references for the City to contact regarding
our performance on these projects. Most of our
project experience for the City of Albany is described
in Section 4, “Track Record with the City of Albany.”

Diversion Dam and Fish Screen Project, City
of Albany, Oregon
Completion Date: 2005 (design)

Proposed Staff Involved: Craig Massie

Reference: Peter Harr, City of Albany, 541/917-7643,
                peter.harr@cityofalbany.net

The Albany Diversion Dam diverts water from the
South Santiam River into the Santiam–Albany Water
Supply Canal. The 18-mile canal supplies drinking
water to the Cities of Albany and Lebanon as well as
water for a hydropower generation facility located at
the end of the canal. The Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission (FERC) requested major improvements
to the dam and fish ladders as a condition of its 50-
year hydroelectric power license to the City. This
project involved rehabilitating Albany Diversion
Dam across the South Santiam River, installing a new
fishscreen at the head of the canal, rehabilitating the
right bank fish ladder, and completely removing and
rebuilding the left bank ladder.

The permitting requirements for the project included
development of a biological assessment, a wetland
delineation, and other related approvals as studies as
part of a complex U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
404/Oregon Department of State Lands (ODSL)
Rmoval-Fill permit application. The project involved

Hedges Creek Channel Restoration at Teton
Avenue, City of Tualatin, Oregon
Completion Date: 2002
Proposed Staff Involved: Mark Anderson, Joe Plaskett

Reference: Kaaren Hofmann, Civil Engineer,
           City of Tualatin, 503/691-3034,
           Khofmann@ci.tualatin.or.us

CH2M HILL       performed     design,   construction
services, and monitoring. The project improved the
hdrological function of Hedges Creek through
channel restoration and flow improvement. The
alignment of the creek upstream of Teton Avenue
was restored to a more natural configuration, the
creek’s hydrologic capacity was increased, and a new
bridge structure was installed at Teton Avenue to
augment the two existing culverts. Approximately
2.0 acres of wetlands were restored through the
channel relocation project.

West Fork Hylebos Creek Stream Restoration,
City of Federal Way, Washington
Completion Date: 2004 with continuous monitoring

Proposed Staff Involved: Pete Sturtevant

Reference: Fei Tang, Federal Way Engineering
           Department, City of Federal Way,
           253/835-2751,
           fei.tan@cityoffederalway.com

This project included six studies aimed at identifying
sediment sources, modeling flows, and developing
alternatives for fixing a recurring bridge siltation and
flooding problem, and involved the development of
design drawings and specifications for construction.
Responsible       for     preparing      environmental
documentation and permitting for the project. Played
a key role in several public presentations explaining
the proposed project to the interested residents.
Managed follow-on construction services for the City
of Federal Way, ensuring the timely availability of
specialists needed to review work performed by the
contractor. The project was successfully installed
within the limited fish window available for the
creek.

Project Manager, West Fork, Hylebos Creek, Stream Restoration, City of Federal Way, WA. Project manager for this
restoration and stream stabilization project. This project included six studies aimed at identifying sediment
sources, modeling flows and developing alternatives for fixing a recurring bridge siltation and flooding
problem and involved the development of design drawings and specifications for construction. Responsible for
preparing environmental documentation and permitting for the project. Played a key role in several public
presentations explaining the proposed project to the interested residents. Managed follow-on construction
services for the City of Federal Way, assuring the timely availability of specialists needed to review work
performed by the Contractor. The project was successfully installed within the limited fish window available for
the creek.

Project Manager, Venema Creek Natural Drainage System Study, Seattle Public Utilities, WA. Project manager of a
feasibility study to retrofit the existing stormwater drainage system of a 70-acre subbasin. The goal was to
minimize or entirely eliminate the traditional curb/gutter and storm pipe system commonly found in much of
the city through the use of LID measures. The project studied open drainage swales, runoff retention areas, and
underground storage as means to retain and infiltrate as much locally-generated runoff as practical and protect
the salmon-bearing Pipers Creek. To quantify the reductions in runoff from this project, CH2M HILL’s LIFE
Model was applied to quantify flow reductions on a street-by-street basis. Despite the project constraint to
retrofit LID measures solely in the road right-of-way, model analysis indicated net reductions in total annual
stormwater runoff of up to 80 percent..
Task Lead, Stream and Wetland Mitigation for the Brightwater Wastewater Project, King County Department of
Natural Resources, WA. Led the hydrologic analysis preliminary design for the relocation of two highly degraded
creeks and several watercourses within and adjacent to a large new WWTP. The streams and water courses
were re-routed and combined within a 40-acre restoration site, resulting in more than one-half mile of restored
stream channel. As a result of groundwater monitoring, a portion of the site was excavated to take advantage of
shallow groundwater conditions. The new stream channels feature tree trunks, root wads, and stream gravel to
create fish spawning and rearing habitat. Two small ponds were provided to provide refuge for fish during

Project Manager, Sequalitchew Creek and Estuary Enhancement Project, Glacier Northwest, WA. Project manager
for a 2-year stream monitoring program designed to determine the groundwater influences upon this Puget
Sound stream. The stream terminates in a small, tidally-influenced estuary. The study examined the effects of
enhancing streamflow through the lowering of groundwater that would result from a proposed expansion of an
existing gravel mine. This study was supported by groundwater modeling of the regional aquifer. A unique
aspect of the study involved flow and water quality measurements of a series of large freshwater springs
situated in the intertidal area. The potential impacts upon these springs was analyzed, along with possible
impacts to smelt and inter-tidal species.

Project Manager, Venema Creek Natural Drainage System Study, Seattle Public Utilities, WA. Project manager of a
feasibility study to retrofit the existing stormwater drainage system of a 70-acre subbasin in the City of Seattle.
The goal was to minimize or entirely eliminate the traditional curb/gutter and storm pipe system commonly
found in much of the city through the use of LID measures. The project studied open drainage swales, runoff
retention areas, and underground storage as means to retain and infiltrate as much locally-generated runoff as
practical and protect the salmon-bearing Pipers Creek. To quantify the reductions in runoff from this project,
CH2M HILL’s special LIFE Model was applied to quantify flow reductions on a street-by-street basis. Despite
the project constraint to retrofit LID measures solely in the road right-of-way, model analysis indicated net

Water Resource Engineer, Polk Street Basin Water Quality Improvement Project, City of Eugene, OR. Performed an
alternatives analysis to identify potential sites for stormwater quality improvement projects. The primary
facility is a large custom vault with a series of weirs, baffles, and gates that are designed to separate floatable
and settle-able pollutants. The large facility is located off-line, adjacent to an existing vault more than 20 feet
below ground, with relatively large inflow/outflow pipes (88 inches in diameter), and it provides treatment for
the entire basin.

Water Resource Engineer, Oleson Road, Washington County, OR. The County hoped to reduce flooding at two
creek crossings of Oleson Road and improve fish passage by enlarging the box culverts. Used a hydrodynamic
HEC-RAS model to evaluate potential downstream impacts under various alternatives.

Water Resource Engineer, Oak Lodge Sanitary Sewer Master Plan, Oak Lodge, OR. The Oak Lodge sanitary system
consists of approximately 100 miles of pipe and five pump stations. Primary tasks included GIS-integrated
hydraulic modeling, capacity evaluation, and condition assessment.

Water Resource Engineer, Dayton Stormwater Study, City of Dayton, OH. Created an XP-SWMM model for the
existing and proposed stormwater system, to analyze the capacity, identify system deficiencies, and guide the
design of proposed improvements. The study included transient analysis of run-off and hydraulic routing.

Water Resource Engineer, Lake Oswego Canal Bridge Project, City of Lake Oswego, OR. Work has focused on
hydraulics analysis and design elements for a heavily controlled system with uncertain operations. The tasks
have included a FEMA no-rise certification to support floodplain permitting. Unique challenges were associated
with designing and installing water quality treatment facilities in a confined space where water quality issues
are a high priority due to degradation of water quality.
