Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is approving an amendment to the ITP that includes the following changes: First, this Amendment will change the construction sequencing and methodology because the temporary bypass needed to construct the Lower Traynor and the Lower Schwind Canal has been deemed unfeasible due to issues with property owners not willing to allow construction. This change will result in a substantial reduction of the temporary impacts. Second, this amendment changes notification of new observations of Covered Species/to be provided to CNDDB concurrently with submission of the Quarterly Compliance Report or Annual Status Report, whichever report is submitted first relative to the observation. Third, this amendment updated the project impacts. The Project will result in impacts to 22.16 acres of Giant garter snake (Thamnophis gigas) habitat including temporary impacts to 19.41 acres; the Project will permanently remove 2.75 acres of giant garter snake upland habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of giant garter snake which is/are designated as a threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
