Document Description
The project involves the development of a wind energy production facility on an ~1,600 acre site. Project activities would occur on a smaller area within the 1,600 acre site and would include clearing, grubbing, and grading for roads, a laydown area, wind turbine pads, a substation, meteorological towers, and underground and overhead transmission and collection lines. 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.
