Snake Observation

If a giant garter snake is observed in the construction area, all construction activities will cease, and a USFWS-Approved Biologist will be notified immediately. Once the USFWS-Approved Biologist is at the location of the snake, all construction activities within 200 feet of the snake, if within the fenced construction footprint, will remain on hold to prevent harm to the snake. The snake should be allowed to leave on its own, and activities will not resume until the snake has moved out of the construction footprint on its own. Relocation of the snake will only be allowed as a last resort and in a manner consistent with a project-specific, USFWS-Approved GGS Relocation Plan.
