Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number 2069: On January 14, 2005, the Arizona Public Service Company (licensee) filed an Agave Protection Plan and a Bat Grating Plan pursuant to paragraphs (P) and (S), respectively, of the Order Approving Surrender of License and Removal of Project Works, and Dismissing Application for New License for the Childs Irving Project, issued October 8, 2004.1 The Childs Irving Project is located on Fossil Creek in Gila and Yavapai Counties, Arizona, on lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service (FS). Paragraph (P) requires the licensee to file, for Commission approval, a plan to protect, during project removal and site restoration, any succulent plants of the genus Agave and the invertebrates that depend upon those plants. The plan shall include: a description of the methods used to survey for Agave plants in the areas that would be disturbed by deconstruction activities; a description of techniques to avoid or mitigate any adverse effects on Agave plants located in the survey; and an implementation schedule. The plan shall be prepared in consultation with the FS, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD). Paragraph (S) requires the licensee to file, for Commission approval, a plan to install bat grates at the mouths of the project tunnels to allow bats to use the tunnels for roosts while rendering the tunnels inaccessible to the public. The plan shall be prepared in consultation with the FS, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD).
