Description
Summary:The purpose of this study is to characterize population size, productivity, nesting phenology, and habitat use of raptor species to inform the prediction and quantification of impacts that may result from the proposed Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project, and to provide information required for a possible application(s) for federal eagle take and/or eagle nest take permits. Through the use of aerial surveys, all raptors are studied with a focus on bald and golden eagles. The raptor study area includes a buffer zone around the proposed reservoir and road, rail, and transmission line corridors (including the Denali corridor linked to the Denali Highway and westward to Cantwell). This draft document details Alaska Energy Authority's status in implementing the study as set forth in the FERC-approved Revised study plan.
