Document Description
The Project includes construction and operation of an 800 megawatt maximum wind energy generation facility. Major components of the project include up to 320 wind turbine generators, three or more electrical substations, meteorological towers, and one or two operations and concrete batch plants. Grading for the Project will excavate, contour, and place fill in a portion of several unnamed ephermal tributaries and Oak Creek. Project components that will occur in CDFG jurisdictional areas include new road construction, widening of existing stream crossings, and the trenching of underground electrical collection lines. Fill material will be placed into ~294 linear ft of CDFG jurisdictional ephermal drainage (~1.54 acres of permanent disturbance, and 2,751.5 cy of cut and 4,521.5 cy of fill). An additional 390 linear ft (~1.96 acres) will be temporarily disturbed during construction.
