Document Description
The project, as approved by the Department of Fish and Game (DFG), consists of an incidental take permit (ITP) authorizing take of Gaviota tarplant (Deinandra increscens ssp, villosa), which is designated as an endangered species under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). A total of 43 geotechnical boring sites need to be accessed and bored to acquire soil and rock samples. Of the 43 sites, 21 sites are within wind turbine generation sites, 4 sites are at an Operation and Maintenance facility, 5 sites are located at the substation, 12 sites are located at roads locations, and 1 site is located at a meteorological tower. Geotechnical boring consists of drilling a test pit, collecting disturbed and undisturbed soil samples, recovering rock core specimens, recording existing rock exposures, and/or performing test pit excavations to identify existing subsurface conditions. The required depth for each bore varies from 5 feet to 50 feet. The Project will cause 0.25 acres of impacts to Gaviota tarplant (Deinandra increscens ssp. villosa) associated with the use of track vehicles and boring and 027 acres of impacts to habitat for Gaviota tarplant from the use of rubber-tired vehicles and boring locations. The project is expected to result in incidental take of Gaviota tarplant. DFG issued the incidental take permit referenced above as a responsible agency under the California Environmental Quality Act relying on the environmental impact report prepared for the Project and certified by the lead agency, County of Santa Barbara.
