Document Description
The Project includes construction and operation of 149 miles of 500kV and 29 miles of 220kV Transmission lines, and associated substations. The Project as approved by the Lead Agency will alter the existing topography through grading for the construction and installation of roads, construction and upgrade of substations, and electrical transmission and communication systems. Grading for the Project will place fill in a portion of an unnamed desert wash that dissipates to sheet flow in the middle of the proposed Whirlwind Substation site. Fill material will be placed into approximately 390 linear feet of CA Department of Fish and Game ("CDFG") jurisdictional ephemeral drainage (approximately 0.03 acres of permanent disturbance, and 43 cubic yards of fill). A new, concrete-lined or rip-rapped channel will be constructed to divert flows around the Whirlwind Substation and distribute sheet flow south of the site. Equipment used for construction will include two (2) D9 Caterpillar tractors with side board, four (4) graders/scrapers, two (2) water trucks, and two (2) backhoes for placement of reinforced concrete pipe. The CDFG is issuing the Streambed Alteration Agreement referenced above as a responsible agency under the CEQA.
