Document Description
This proposed project involves the CPUC approved Final Environmentally Superior Southern Route Alternative, which would include a 500 kV transmission line from the Imperial Valley Substation to a new substation southeast of the town of Alpine (Imperial County and San Diego County respectively), then continuing with a 230 kV transmission line with both overhead and underground components to the Sycamore Canyon Substation. Upgrades to the existing transmission system west of Sycamore Canyon Substation would also occur. The Project will result in impacts to 10.04 acres of barefoot-banded gecko (Coleonyx switak) habitat including temporary impacts to 2.83 acres; the Project will permanently remove 7.21 acres of barefoot-banded gecko habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take or barefoot-banded gecko, which is designated as a threatened species under 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. Minor Amendment 3 of the ITP makes one specific change to the ITP as originally issued. The change extends the time (an additional 18 months) for completing the transfer, conversation easement, and management endowment for the habitat mitigation lands. However, the result impacts to the Covered Species will remain the same.
