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. Minor Amendment No. 1 (Amendment) documents the use of excess Tehachapi Renewable Energy Transmission Project (ITP No. 2081-2010-028-05) HM Lands for HM Lands for the Project and the Tehachapi Renewable Energy Transmission Project to be managed in an integrated manner. The Amendment also holds both the Project and the Tehachapi Renewable Energy Transmission Project jointly and severally liable for requirements associated with HM Lands.
