Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has executed Amendment No.3 to Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2015-0041-R4, issued to California Flats Solar, LLC. The Project includes construction of up to 56 road crossings, one clear-span bridge, up to 23 trench crossings to install underground electrical cables beneath or adjacent to the proposed road crossings, and installation of photovoltaic panel support piles and security perimeter fencing through Cottonwood Creek, Cholame Creek, their unnamed tributaries, and other unnamed streams. Amendment No. 3 includes removing one cable installation project and replacing with a similar project at a location in a different stream; and leaving a water pipeline installed by horizontal directional drilling in place rather than removing after project construction. The Extension extends the expiration date of the Agreement from May 25, 2021 to May 25, 2026.
