Document Description
This proposed Project involves work that was completed under the original ITP and Major Amendments 1 and 2, and work that was not yet completed when the ITP expired. The Project includes CDRP work activities associated with various habitat restoration (rehabilitation), establishment, and enhancement efforts at five (5) proposed Mitigation Sites. This Project also includes work necessary to install a waterline on EBRPD property as part of a settlement agreement for the CDRP. The CDRP is included in the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission's (SFPUC) Water System Improvement Program (WSIP). The five proposed Mitigation Sites are included in the SFPUC's Bioregional Habitat Reserve (BHR). The BHR is comprised of a number of SFPUC owned and purchased properties. The five proposed BHR Mitigation Sites are Sheep Camp Creek Site, San Antonio Creek, Goldfish Pond, Goat Rock, and Grimes. Each of the Mitigation Sites may contribute compensation for CDRP impacts to biological resources. The Project will result in impacts to 741.69 acres of permanent impacts, 7.00 acres of semi-permanent impacts, and 112.74 acres of temporary impacts to Alameda whipsnake (Masticophis laterlis euryxanthus), California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense), and foothill yellow-legged frog (Rana boylii) habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of Alameda whipsnake and California tiger salamander which are designated as a threatened species and foothill yellow legged frog which is designated as an endangered species under CESA. 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.
