“We are thrilled to have Theresa’s expertise and experience on our planning team,” said SCJ Principal Eric Johnston, PE. “She has a broad background in permitting and extensive regulatory compliance with SEPA, NEPA, the FHWA, and HUD. She has developed innovative solutions to avoid impacts to sensitive resources, including wetlands and shorelines. She’s very talented.”Turpin’s experience includes providing senior review of all permit documentation for the Port of Walla Walla’s sewer crossing connecting Burbank Industrial Park to the Pasco Sewer System. She also provided regulatory compliance services for two Yakama Nation projects: Yakama Forest Projects and Wanity Park Senior Housing redevelopment. Turpin served as the project manager for wetland delineation for the Horn Rapids Industrial Park in the City of Richland and assisted a Pasco property owner with obtaining a U.S. Army Corps permit to dredge their irrigation intake.Turpin’s meticulous and collaborative approach is well suited for the coordination required by many projects with local, state, and federal regulatory agencies. These include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for Section 404 and Section 10 permits, WA State Dept. of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) for Hydraulic Project Approvals, WA State Dept. of Ecology for Section 401 permits and SEPA, and the WA Dept. of Natural Resources for various permits.A nationally-recognized, award-winning company, SCJ Alliance was found in 2006 as Shea Carr Jewell. “New strategic hires like Theresa allow us to offer expanded services to our clients,” shared SCJ Principal Jean Carr, LEED AP BD+C. SCJ has grown steadily from three employees in one location, to more than 40 employees in five locations across three states.
