Document Description
DWR is proposing to submit a Minor Amendment Request to CDFW extending the term of the existing LFS ITP from December 31, 2019 to March 31, 2020 or until issuance of an ITP covering all listed species, whichever comes first. The purpose of this request is to enable continued coverage of ongoing operations of the SWP in the Delta which may affect conditions in the historic range of LFS while ongoing studies and consultation occurs related to issuance of a new ITP that covers LFS and three other species listed as threatened or endangered under CESA, including Delta Smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus), Winter-run Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), and Spring-run Chinook Salmon (O. tshawytscha). No changes to SWP facilities or operations are proposed. All terms and conditions of the 2009 ITP would remain in effect with issuance of the minor amendment and would continue to be applied to ongoing SWP water deliveries. All operations would continue to comply with the terms of the 2008 and 2009 federal BiOps during the period of the extension.
