Document Description
The project involves expansion of the capacity of the existing Los Vaqueros Reservoir from 100-thousand-acre-feet (TAF) to 160 TAF. Phase 1 of the project involves raising the crest of the existing 192-foot-tall earthfill dam by adding fill on top of the existing shell. Phase 2 involves filling the reservoir to its new 160 TAF capacity, resulting in inundation of 341 acres of surrounding developed and undeveloped lands. Phase 3 of the project involves operation and maintenance activities associated with the dam, reservoir, and related facilities and with managing the project site. Project-related impacts are expected to result in the take of San Joaquin kit fox, Alameda whipsnake, and California tiger salamander, species protected by CESA. Project activities will also result in permanent loss of 754 acres of habitat for these species. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is issuing the CESA ITP referenced above as a responsible agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
