Nest Survey Reports, Nest Buffer Reduction Requests, and Approvals
conducts nesting bird surveys and implements protective measures to
avoid and mitigate project-related
impacts to nesting birds during the avian nesting season as specified
the MMCRP. The specified buffers
from nesting birds may be reduced on a case-by-case basis in accordance
with Mitigation Measure Biology-7 if, based on compelling biological or
ecological reasoning, a CPUC-, USFWS-, and CDFW-approved qualified
biologist determines that implementation of a specified smaller buffer
distance will still avoid nest abandonment and failure. The CPUC’s
biologist reviews SDG&E's requests to reduce standard buffers
temporary buffer incursions. The nest survey reports, nest buffer
reduction requests (NBRRs), and approvals can be viewed below.
