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 (3) or more electrical substations, meteorological towers, and one(1) or two (2) operations and concrete batch plants. Grading for the Project will excavate, contour, and place fill in a portion of several unnamed ephemeral 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. A total of 440 linear feet of streambed would be temporarily affected, and 542 feet would be permanently affected. Much of the affected area is already affected by existing road crossings. Fill quantities in cubic yards are 170 for SC 104, 1500 for SC 200, 1170 for SC 205, 1200 for SC218, 360 for the Burns Ridge crossing. The CDFG is issuing the Streambed Alteration Agreement referenced above as a Responsible Agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
