Public Notices

  • March 3, 2017
    The Habitat Conservation Planning Branch has finalized the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Hart Ranch Flow Enhancement Project (SCH: 2017017061) and Notice of Determination has been filed.

    Project Description: The Hart Ranch Flow Enhancement Project (Project) consists of various agricultural water infrastructure modifications and ongoing agricultural operations on the Hart Ranch along the Little Shasta River in the Shasta Valley. The Project consists primarily of linear alignments along proposed pipe alignments with associated water management infrastructure in existing irrigated pastures and uplands with occasional irrigation ditch crossings, and modification of the existing agricultural diversion structure which poses a partial barrier to fish passage in the Little Shasta River. On-ranch efficiency and water management improvements include 1) the construction of new stock watering facilities, 2) replacement of the Hart Ranch’s failing Main Pipeline, 3) fish passage improvements consisting of relocation and replacement of the Hart irrigation diversion structure and recontour of a portion of the Little Shasta River to ensure fish passage, and 4) water diversion.

    Project Location: Hart Ranch (41̊ 41' 25.85"N latitude, 122̊ 22' 51.11"W longitude) in the Shasta Valley, APN 039-170-310, 039-130-140, 039-170-270, 039-170-060, 039-170-280, 039-130-100, and 039-140-080, Siskiyou County (Project area).

    link opens in new windowNotice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the PG&E Gas Line 107 Retirement and Line 131 Valve Replacement Project (PDF)

    Project Description: Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will retire (permanently remove from service) a 13-mile portion of gas transmission pipeline 107 (L-107) in Alameda County from south of Livermore to the eastern border of Fremont, California. The pipeline runs through public and private lands and contains 58 locations where ground-disturbing activities would take place to either remove the pipeline or abandon it in place. A previously abandoned section of pipeline 131 (L-131) would also be removed from a property where a section of L-107 is being removed. In addition, valve repair and replacement work would occur at two locations on L-131 which runs parallel to L-107

    Project Location: The L-107 retirement segment is located in eastern Alameda County between Livermore and Fremont. The retirement segment originates at the PG&E Livermore Junction station in an unincorporated area of the County, approximately 1 mile south and east of Livermore. It extends to the southwest for approximately 13 miles to the PG&E Vargas Station about 0.75 miles northeast of Mission Boulevard and just west of Interstate 680 in Fremont, The starting location is at 37.657106 degrees north latitude and 121.732301 west longitude. The end location is at 37.545044 degrees north latitude and 121.931473 west longitude.

    The valve replacement consists of two work areas. One is within private property at 7820 Vallecitos Road (APN 096-0365-002-05) in the City of Sunol (Alameda County) within the La Costa Valley USGS 7.5-minute quadrangle map. The second is within private property at 5100 Sheridan Road (APN 096-0001-002-12) in the City of Sunol (Alameda County) within the Niles USGS 7.5-minute quadrangle map.
