Document Description
This Project involves making improvements to the downstream side of the existing B.F. Sisk Dam embankment to enhance its stability and increase the dam crest height to reduce the potential for water to overtop the dam if seismic-induced slumping were to occur. The Project will result in impacts to 342.84 acres of California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) habitat including temporary impacts to 334.16 acres; the Project will permanently remove 8.68 acres of California tiger salamander habitat. The Project will result in impacts to 1,075.72 acres of San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica) habitat including temporary impacts to 972.67 acres; the Project will permanently remove 103.05 acres of San Joaquin kit fox habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of California tiger salamander and San Joaquin kit fox, which are designated as 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.
