Abstract: The Lower Berryessa Creek Project (proposed action) consists of the Lower Berryessa Creek and Lower Calera Creek elements, and is part of the Santa Clara Valley Water District>'s (District) larger Lower Berryessa Creek Program, which proposes construction and maintenance of water and flood control facilities in creeks within the City of Milpitas, in Santa Clara County. Available reports and survey results were consulted to determine federally-listed species potentially present in the vicinity of the proposed action. Habitat suitability for listed species known or expected in the area was evaluated, to determine the likelihood of listed species occurrence in the vicinity of the proposed action. In summary, no listed species were observed in the proposed action area during surveys, no listed plants are expected to occur within the proposed action area, and no critical habitat for listed species is present within the action area. Only one listed species was determined to have at least a low potential to occur in the action area, this biological assessment (BA) assesses potential effects on one listed species: California red-legged frog ( Rana draytonii), federally threatened." -- page 1-1.
