Title
2021 Emergency Drought Salinity Barrier Project (Incidental Take Permit No. 2081-2021-041-03)
Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Incidental Take Permit number 2081-2021-041-03, pursuant Fish and Game Code § 2081 (b); Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, §§ 783.2-783.8 to the California Department of Water Resources. In 2021, the lack of precipitation within California, recent warm temperatures and extremely dry soils have depleted the expected runoff water from the Sierra-Cascade snowpack and has again caused a potential for water supplies to be insufficient to repel salinity in the Delta. In an Emergency Proclamation issued May 10, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom directed Permittee to take actions, if necessary, to implement plans that address potential Delta salinity issues, including, among other things, the installation and removal of emergency drought salinity barriers. As a response, the California Department of Water Resources proposes to install (by July 1, 2022) and remove (by November 30, 2022) one temporary rock barrier weir structure, which will span West False River, and installation of two water quality and/or flow monitoring stations.
