Work of Distinction
• Served as the Project Manager for two separate 2-year Indefinite Quantity (IQ) contracts with the U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Coast Guard Facilities Design and Construction Center (Atlantic) in Norfolk, Virginia. These contracts involved a variety of environmental services for assessment, permitting, design, compliance and construction of Coast Guard facilities east of the Rocky Mountains from Maine to Florida and in Puerto Rico. He also managed a similar Indefinite Quantity contract for services at the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve Training Center, Yorktown, Virginia.

• Managed four Indefinite Quantity contracts for the Virginia Department of Transportation. Over a period of 10 years, the VDOT contracts encompassed environmental site assessments, Phase II Investigations, more than 50 Environmental Impact Reports, wetlands delineations, and Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act consulting for a variety of VDOT facilities throughout Virginia.

• Served as the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) environmental consultant for the Meadowbrook – Loudon 500kV Transmission Line Application. His responsibility as the environmental reviewer involved reviewing all environmental documentation, performing field analysis, attending all the public hearings, preparing a report to Commission Staff, and testifying at the Final Public Hearing. McCoy also made himself available for cross examination by counsel for the interveners in the case.

• Served as the environmental consultant to the Virginia SCC on an application to install a 765 kV transmission line from Wyoming, West Virginia to Cloverdale, Virginia. His review was instrumental in reducing the environmental impact of the line on lands situated in Virginia, removing approximately 30 miles of transmission area and right-of-way. More than 200 transmission lines and towers were involved in this $260 million project. McCoy examined endangered species, wetlands, cultural and historical assets, karst, and other environment issues. The alternate alignment he proposed was Certificated by the Commission and extended from Wyoming, West Virginia to Jackson’s Ferry, Virginia.

• Served Virginia Natural Gas as the environmental consultant for five separate natural gas pipeline construction projects. McCoy was instrumental in selecting an alignment that minimized or avoided impact to wetlands and other natural resources, then filed the appropriate permit applications. He also monitored construction activities for compliance with environmental regulations.

• Oversaw FCC Submissions for communications towers throughout Virginia and North Carolina. In excess of 150 towers sites were reviewed, submitted and approved under his guidance. Tasking included field work and identification of environmental issues on the regulatory databases.
