Document Description
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is preparing a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) to address its activities and conservation actions within the Alameda Creek Watershed (Alameda Watershed) - a 47,800-acre area in Alameda and Santa Clara Counties that encompasses 36,816 acres of land owned by the SFPUC as well as an additional 9,900 acres of private land adjacent to SFPUC lands. The purpose of the proposed HCP is to authorize incidental "take" of threatened and endangered species that may result from SFPUC activities in the Alameda Watershed. The term "take" is defined by the federal Endangered Species Act as: to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture or collect listed animal species, or attempt to engage in such conduct. Harm includes significant habitat modification of degradation that actually kills or injures listed wildlife by significantly impairing essential behavioral patterns, including breeding, feeding and sheltering. In accordance with section 10(a)(1)(B) of the federal Endangered Species Act, take of listed species that is incidental to otherwise lawful activities may be authorized through the adoption of a HCP.
