Reasons for Exemption
The project consists of the removal and/or installation of avian netting that bridges over the top of the LEF that is situated between the inner and outer perimeter fences at five existing state prisons (see locations above). The installation of the new netting does not involve the removal of any vegetation, grading, or alterations to the existing arrangement of the subject perimeter fences. The new netting will not alter the appearance of the prisons' perimeters. The replacement netting will serve to create new continuous barriers to wildlife that may otherwise enter the area between the inner and outer perimeter fencing, and in doing so, risk making contact with the electrified conductors used for the lethal fencing component. The installation of new netting is not expected to generate any significant adverse effects on the environment at any of the five project sites. The new netting will have the positive benefit of creating new barriers that will substantially reduce the risk of avian loss.
