Document Description
Routine maintenance of State Water Project (SWP) facilities is required to ensure its proper operation, which may result in incidental take of protected species. The Project consists of implementation of the San Joaquin Field Division Operations and Maintenance Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) to comply with the permitting criteria of the federal and state Endangered Species Acts and the permitting process for Fully Protected species established by California Senate Bill 147. DWR is seeking incidental take permits (ITPs) that remain in effect for a Permit Term of 50 years. The HCP fully mitigates the impact of incidental take of Covered Species associated with SWP maintenance, repair, and improvement activities identified as Covered Activities under the HCP through implementation of a Conservation Strategy. The HCP includes 17 Covered Species, including 3 plant species and 14 wildlife species. Covered Activities under the HCP include routine maintenance, repair, and improvement activities; conservation actions implemented on nonoperational DWR lands or off-site Preserve lands under the HCP Conservation Program; and some emergency activities.
