Document Description
Sunrise Powerlink is a 500 kilovolt (kV) and 240kV transmission line that SDG&E will build, operate, and maintain in San Diego and Imperial counties, California. The line will extend for approximately 117 miles between an existing SDG&E substation south of El Centro in Imperial County to an existing SDG&E substation on the northeast edge of Miramar Marine Air Station in San Diego County. Construction is project to begin in the fall of 2010 and continue for approximately 30 months. The construction phase of the Project will entail establishment of 443 towers and poles, a new substation, permanent access roads, maintenance areas at structure sites, and permanent tower staging access areas for helicopters. Project activities would permanently remove approximately 7.21 acres of barefoot-banded gecko habitat. Temporary impacts would occur on approximately 1.41 acres of habitat. The project is expected to result in the incidental take of barefoot-banded gecko, a species designated as threatened under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is issuing an incidental take permit. DFG also serves as a responsible agency under the California Environmental Quality Act. Minor Amendment No. 2 extends the time allowed to finalize mitigation lands transfer by an additional 18 months.
