§ 898.2. Special Conditions Requiring Disapproval of Plans.
The Director shall disapprove a Plan as not conforming to the Rules of the Board if any one of the following conditions exist:
(a) Boundaries of the area to be harvested are not clearly delineated in the Plan.
(b) Public acquisition of the parcel for purposes which would be impaired by timber harvesting, is legislatively authorized, funded and imminent.
(c) There is evidence that the information contained in the Plan is incorrect, incomplete or misleading in a material way, or is insufficient to evaluate significant environmental Effects. The sufficiency of the information provided in a THP to evaluate significant environmental Effects shall be judged in light of what is reasonable and necessary.
(d) Implementation of the Plan as proposed would result in either a “taking” or finding of jeopardy of wildlife Species listed as rare, threatened, or endangered, by the Fish and Game Commission, the National Marine Fisheries Service, or Fish and Wildlife Service, or would cause significant, long-term damage to Listed Species. The Director is not required to disapprove a Plan under either of the following circumstances:
(1) Which would result in a “taking” if the “taking” is incidental and is authorized by a wildlife agency acting within its authority under state or federal endangered Species acts.
(2) Where anadromous salmonid populations are designated as an experimental population under § 10(j) of the federal Endangered Species Act, and corresponding regulations under § 4(d) of the federal Endangered Species Act for those populations provide an exception from Take prohibitions under the federal Endangered Species Act for activities subject to the California Forest Practice Rules, and federal and state agencies determine no further Take authorizations are necessary, under the federal Endangered Species Act or the California Endangered Species Act.
(e) Implementation of the Plan would irreparably damage plant Species listed as rare or endangered by the CDFW and when the Timber Owner fails to comply with F&GC § 1913.
(f) Implementation of the Plan as proposed would result in the taking of an individual Northern Spotted Owl prohibited by the Federal Endangered Species Act.
(g) Implementation of the Plan as proposed would not achieve maximum sustained production of high-quality timber products as provided for by the Rules of the Board, and by the intent of the Act.
(h) Implementation of the Plan as proposed would cause a violation of any requirement of an applicable water quality control Plan adopted or approved by the State Water Resources Control Board.
(i) Implementation of the Plan as proposed would result in significant adverse slope stability impacts that could affect public safety. The Director's determination of this special condition shall be supported by a review from the California Geological Survey.
