Threshold Table Programmatic Agreement

(2) TxDOT compares the results of an assessment of the location of animal I with the triggers in Article 2.206 of this sub-chapter (with respect to coordination triggers) and the thresholds found in the programmatic agreement developed in paragraph 2.213 of this sub-chapter to determine the need for coordination with TPWD. 5. A programmatic agreement on conservation projects shall be drawn up. (b) At a time, the interagency MOU Implementation Team will develop programmatic agreements described in this subsection. (19) Suitable habitats – habitats that provide a species or community with the specific physical location and conditions necessary for survival and survival. These may include terrestrial and aquatic vegetation communities; a specific watershed, water area or segment of the stream; water quantity or quality thresholds; certain geological substrates (such as limestone, granite and sand) or formations (such as carst and caves); or a species farmer. (4) A programmatic agreement is developed to update and support the TXNDD to be a first-rate resource. In 1995, FHWA, Caltrans, SHPO and ACHP entered into a programmatic agreement for the programmatic implementation of compliance with NHPA Section 106 under the California Seismic Retrofit of Bridge Structures Program, considered an emergency program. Since the implementation of the Sismic Retrofit Programmatic Agreement, toll bridges and bridges have been modernized, but the Local Bridge Seismic Safety Retrofit Program is still in effect. Since the federal provisions have been amended to 36 CFR Part 800 since 1995, the Seismic Modernization Agreement is replaced by this Agreement and the relevant provisions providing for accelerated compliance are updated to meet the provisions in force in 36 CFR Part 800 and are included in Appendix 7 to that Agreement.

Caltrans will comply with the current provisions of this Agreement in order to determine the potential of the seismic upgrading project of historic areas of conssession. This provision will remain in effect until CSO notifies SHPO, ACHP and other searchable parties that all measures under the local bridge safety protection program have been completed or that this agreement will terminate. (c) For the purposes of subsection (b) of this section, an amendment is essential if it corresponds to or exceeds at least one of the factors listed in paragraph 2.206 of this sub-chapter, or if the proposed new effects are greater than previously coordinated or now exceed a threshold as found in the programmatic agreement on the table of thresholds established in accordance with paragraph 2.213 of this sub-chapter. Such changes may include, inter alia, increased effects on wild fisheries and animal resources or on rare vegetation series identified in the ACAP, changes in the state of those resources since prior coordination or identification of a new set of TXNDD data or records of rare or protected species or exploited areas likely to be affected and different from those identified in the previous coordination. . . .
