|These bighorn sheep are part of a large herd that inhabit the Soda Mountains. Their water source and foraging habitat would be jeopardized by the Soda Mountain Solar project if it is built, and an opportunity to connect this herd with the historical range of the bighorn sheep may be threatened by construction of the project.|
A detailed list of wildlife species observed or detected on the desert habitat targeted by Bechtel is available below.
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), which owns the nearest transmission lines to the Soda Mountain site, has already said it would not purchase power from the project because of its environmental impact. However, Bechtel could still request permission to use the transmission lines to deliver power to another buyer.
