Document Description
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has filed an application for an Incidental Take Permit (ITP) under Section 2081 of the California Endangered Species Act (CESA) with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW). The ITP would cover PG&E’s San Francisco Bay Area (Bay Area) Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and minor new construction activities for its natural gas and electric lines, and establish a comprehensive approach to avoid, minimize, and fully mitigate impacts on covered species and habitat (collectively “covered activities”).The ITP will provide incidental take coverage for three species, the California tiger salamander, Alameda whipsnake, and California freshwater shrimp (covered species), in the Bay Area for the next 30 years. The geographic scope of the proposed Project encompasses Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Sonoma, and Solano Counties. Within those nine counties, the Permit Area consists of PG&E gas and electric transmission and distribution facilities, rights-of-way (ROWs plus standard buffers), lands owned or obtained by PG&E or subject to PG&E easements, access routes, and conservation areas acquired to provide compensatory mitigation for impacts resulting from covered activities.
