Document Description
The project subject to the incidental take permit (ITP) issued by DFG involves the replacement of existing 115kV transmission lines and power poles with new poles and lines along an approximately 40 mile corridor from Butte County to Sutter County. The project will result in impacts to 25.3 acres of Giant Garter Snake (Thamnophis gigas) habitat, including temporary impacts to 25.2 acres and permanent removal of 0.12 acre. The project is expected to result in incidental take of Giant Garter Snake, which is designated as a threatened species under the CA Endangered Species Act (CESA) (Fish & G. Code, S 2050 et seq.). The ITP referenced above as issued by DFG authorizes incidental take of Giant Garter Snake expected to occur as a result of Project implementation.
