Document Description
This Project involves restoring and permanently protecting approximately 3,100 acres of tidal wetlands and improving flood storage in the Yolo Bypass. Project activities include a levee setback, levee improvements, invasive species control, removal of buildings and structure, construction of channels and ponds and utility access peninsulas, grading, revegetation, levee lowering and breaching. The Project will permanently impact Giant Garter Snake habitat (164 acres of aquatic, 331 acres of summer upland habitat, 109 acres of winter refugia); temporarily impact 1.7 acres of Delta Smelt and Longfin Smelt shallow water habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of Giant Garter Snake and Longfin Smelt, which are designated as threatened species under CESA, and Delta Smelt, which is designated as an endangered species under CESA. The Project will also permanently impact 120 square feet of Mason’s lilaeopsis and is expected to result in its take, which is designated as a rare species under the NPPA. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA and NPPA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
