May 20th, 2014: The Stockton City Council approved Condor to provide Storm Water Monitoring Services over the next five years with two possible one-year extensions for the amount of approximately $1.8 million! Condor will provide the City of Stockton and County of San Joaquin with monitoring compliance activities for their Phase I NPDES Storm Water Permit. Micheline Doyle Kipf, Condor’s Storm Water Compliance Group Manager, will be the Senior Project Manager for this project. Ms. Doyle Kipf has served in this capacity for the Permittees for the past 10 years.
Jordan Johnson, one of Condor’s Environmental Specialists, gave presentations to ten different groups of sixth graders who attended Manteca Unified School District’s “Planet Party Day.” This was our second consecutive year of giving presentations and this year the sixth graders learned about the pH scale and were allowed to take pH samples of certain items like coffee, lemon juice, windex, and baking soda. Other participants were the California Department of Fish & Game, Salida Unified School District, South San Joaquin Irrigation District, Micke Grove Zoo, California Environmental Protection Agency, Cal Recycle, and Crystal Creamery (just to name a few).
