The Draft Environmental Impact Statement-Draft Program Timberland Environmental Impact Report has been prepared in response to the application by Mendocino Redwood Company for: (1) An incidental take permit and a programmatic Streambed Alteration Agreement from the California Department of Fish and Game; (2) Federal incidental take permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service; and (3) A Timber Management Plan from the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The state and federal incidental take permits, if granted, would authorize the take of protected species incidental to otherwise lawful timber operations for 80 years. The programmatic Streambed Alteration Agreement, if issued, supports timber operations that might substantially affect a stream or lake. The Timber Management Plan, if certified as part of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement-Draft Program Timberland Environmental Impact Report, would grant the authority to submit Program Timber Harvesting Plans for individual timber harvesting projects. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection is the lead agency and the California Department of Fish and Game is a responsible agency under the California Environmental Quality Act. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service are co-lead agencies under the National Environmental Policy Act.
