Document Description
This proposed project involves the removal of an existing fish ladder at Fremont Weir, modification of the stilling basin, installation of a fish passage structure, and installation of a box culvert (Fremont Weir Fish Passage Structure); improvements to the channel that extends from the south side of the Sacramento River up to the fish ladder located at Fremont Weir (Upstream Channel); improvements to a poorly defined channel that begins on the south side of the existing fish ladder curving in a southeast direction to an existing deep pond (Reach 1); replacement of an earthen agricultural road crossing (Agricultural Road Crossing #2) on Tule Canal with box culverts; and, complete removal of an earthen agricultural road crossing (Agricultural Crossing #3) on Tule Canal. The Project's initial construction will occur over two construction seasons. Project will result in impacts to 5.37 acres of giant garter snake (Thamnophis gigas) habitat including temporary impacts to 3.54 acres and 2.52 acres of Sacramento River spring-run and winter-run Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) habitat including temporary impacts to 0.42 acres; the Project will permanently remove 1.83 acres of giant garter snake habitat and 2.1 acres of Sacramento River spring-run and winter-run Chinook salmon. The project is expected to result in incidental take of giant garter snake and Sacramento River spring-run Chinook salmon, which are designated as a threatened species and winter-run Chinook salmon, which are designated as an 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.
