Kern River Gas Line

Soil-Tech's experience in Mojave Desert restoration and revegetation made it the natural selection as the revegetation contractor for sections of what was once the largest pipeline of its time, the Kern River pipeline stretching from Utah through Nevada and into California. Soil-Tech applied native seed across the length of the pipeline, and salvaged and re-planted native plants in the largest Mojave Desert revegetation project ever.

Challis

By their nature, native habitat restoration projects often involve accessing incredibly remote areas without creating further disturbance to the environment. In Challis, Idaho, Soil-Tech implemented one of its suite of creative applications of Permeon™ by using a helicopter to spray a remote rock feature. Similar difficult to access areas have been reached by boat, repelling, hiking, and any other means necessary to get the job done.
