Document Description
The proposed Project involves construction of various remediation facilities during a period of up to 10 years and to operate, maintain and eventually decommission remediation facilities during a period of up to 50 years to remediate groundwater chromium-6 contamination at Hinkley. The Project will result in impacts to 223.1 acres of Agassiz's desert tortoise ( Gopherus agassizil) and Mohave ground squirrel (Xerospermophilus mohavensis) habitat including temporary impacts to 65 acres; the Project will permanently remove 158.1 acres of Agassiz's desert tortoise and Mohave ground squirrel habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of Agassiz's desert tortoise and Mohave ground squirrel, which are designated as a threatened species under the 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.
