Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number 2069 On January 14, 2005, the Arizona Public Service Company (licensee or APS) filed a Revegetation Plan and a Bird Disturbance Plan pursuant to paragraphs (L) and (T), 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 (L) requires the licensee to file, for Commission approval, a detailed, site-specific final revegetation plan. Paragraph (T) requires the licensee to file, for Commission approval, a plan to avoid aural or visual disturbance of special-status bird species in the project area caused by project removal activities. The plan shall include: scheduling no project removal activities near the riparian areas of Fossil Creek and Stehr Lake from February 15 through August 31; if project removal activities must occur within 0.25 miles of riparian areas from February 15 through August 31, conducting bird nesting surveys; and if nests are identified, establishing 0.25-mile project removal activity buffers around those locations for the duration of the species-specific breeding seasons. Both plans shall be prepared in consultation with the FS, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the Arizona Game and Fish Department (AGFD).
