Document Description
This proposed project involves a variety of methods (i.e., geotechnical borings, cone penetration tests, in-situ pump out tests, test pits) used to explore and characterize embankment and foundation materials downstream of the dam axis to gather data for use in analysis and design for the proposed B.F. Sisk Safety of Dams Modification Project. The Project will result in temporary impacts to 4 acres of California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) habitat and is expected to result in incidental take of California tiger salamander, which is designated as a threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). 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.
