Document Description
The project consists of the excavation of no more than two small test pits, with the outside dimensions of each test pit limited to no more than 25 feet (ft) by 50 ft by 5 ft deep. No more than one test pit will be excavated on each side of Base Line bridge. Excavation will be performed using an excavator during day light hours. The project will be limited to a maximum of 2 days with no more than a total of 20 hours on site. The excavator will travel from the adjacent commercial parking lot on the west side of City Creek and from an open area on the east side of City Creek. Excavated materials will be temporarily stockpiled on the compacted shoulder of Base Line. The test pits will be backfilled with the same excavated material (soils, gravel, cobbles, and boulders) using the excavator. Any material that cannot be placed as backfill within the excavated test pits will be disposed of offsite. The project will result in impacts to 0.06 acres of San Bernardino kangaroo rat (Dipodomys merriami parvus) habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of San Bernardino kangaroo rat, which is designated as a candidate species under the California Endangered Species Act. 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.
