BNSF Pre-SCAT data collection and SCAT manual development

Polaris is currently working with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) to gather and develop pre-SCAT data for several rivers in the Western United States. The effort includes pre-segmentation of specific rivers, defining river bank types and ESI categories, documentation of sensitive resources, and identification of access, logistical, and operational features. Polaris is also developing a Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT) guidance manual specifically for use by BNSF.
