Document Description
The project consists of construction, operation, and maintenance of a fixed wall with a gate structure near the mouth of Atherton Cove. The wall and gate structure will be built to isolate the adjacent neighborhoods from the 100-year floodplain and meet the Federal Emergency Management Agency's minimum acceptable level of performance of withstanding a 100-year flood, which is the regulatory standard specified by the National Flood Insurance Program. The Project will result in impacts on a total of 41.66 acres of Covered Species [Delta Smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus), Longfin Smelt (Spirinchus thaleichthys), and Chinook Salmon - Central Valley spring-run (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)] habitat; the project will permanently remove 1.66 acres of Covered Species habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of Covered Species, which are designated as a threatened or endangered 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.
