Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number P-2069: On January 14, 2005, the Arizona Public Service Company (licensee) filed a Monitoring and Adaptive Management Strategy for Special Status Species and Habitat Plan pursuant to paragraph (Q) 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 (Q) requires the licensee to file, for Commission approval, a plan to monitor the success of the development of riparian habitat and the presence, distribution, and abundance of special-status animal species downstream from Fossil Springs Dam during project removal and site restoration. The plan shall include: a description of the riparian habitat and special-status animal species monitoring program, including a protocol for determining success; a schedule for implementing the monitoring program and for reporting the monitoring results to the Commission and the consulted agencies during project removal and site restoration; and provisions for, if necessary, implementing adaptive management measures to ensure that special-status species are able to maintain their populations until the stabilization of the Fossil Springs Botanical Area and Fossil Springs Dam area after the dam's removal. The plan shall be prepared in consultation with the FS, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), and the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD).
