Document Description
The Project involves construction and operation of the new customer-dedicated, 115/33kV Leatherneck Substation, located within the USMC Combat Center. The Leatherneck Substation will be connected and looped to both existing Hi Desert Substation and Carodean Substation. The Hi Desert-Leatherneck Subtransmission Line will consist partly of a new line and partly of reconfigured existing line. The Project will result in impacts to 289.07 acres of habitat for the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii), including temporary impacts to 285.48 acres and permanent removal of 3.59 acres of desert tortoise habitat. The Project is expected to result in incident take of desert tortoise, which is designated as a threatened spices under the California Endangered Species Act (Fish & G. Code, Sec. 2081 sub. (b); Cal. Code Regs.,tilt. 14 Sec. 670.5, subd. (b)(4)(A).)
