Abstract:

Proposed Action. The Proposed Action consists of vernal pool restoration projects at Site 2 and Site 3 at Beale AFB. The vernal pool restoration projects fulfill compensation requirements for past and future impacts to vernal pools that are habitat for federally threatened and endangered species. No Action Alternative. Under the No Action Alternative, Beale AFB would not be able to meet regulatory compensation requirements. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers require compensation for vernal pool impacts to involve both a restorationcreation component and a preservation component.
