Document Description
Project involves installation of up to 26 new more efficient wind turbine generators (WTG), improvements to related infrastructure and roads within an existing decommissioned wind site, and removal of existing below grade turbine foundations that obstruct placement of Project facilities. The project includes building new access roads, widening existing roads, constructing new laydown yards, installing underground electrical collector lines, installing culverts on stream crossings, conducting horizontal directional drilling, installing meteorological towers, and improving related infrastructure. Project site is within an existing decommissioned wind site. Prior decommissioning activities conducted at the site included cut back and burial of existing WTG foundations. However, foundations were not fully excavated and removed. Therefore, the Project will include removal of existing below grade WTG foundations on an as-needed basis; only those that obstruct placement of Project facilities. The project will result in impacts to 200.5 acres of CA tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) and San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica) habitat, including temporary impacts to 157.23 acres; the Project will permanently remove 43.27 acres of CA tiger salamander and San Joaquin kit fox habitat. The project is expected to result incidental take of CA tiger salamander and San Joaquin kit fox, which are both designated as a threatened species under 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.
