Programmatic Biological Assessment for Fourteen Common Disaster Activities in Washington State (June 2009)

Main Content
The intent of the Programmatic Biological Assessment (PBA) is to streamline the consultation process under the Endangered Species Act and the Magnuson-Stevens Act between FEMA and the US Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service to quickly repair or replace public facilities following a disaster event. The activities described in this PBA are often associated with disasters such as earthquakes, floods, strong winds, and slides in Washington State. Only actions that result in “may affect, not likely to adversely affect” determinations are covered by this PBA. The fourteen activities include: organic debris removal, mineral debris removal, anthropogenic debris removal, gravel placement, piling repair and replacement dewater and water diversion actions, recreational structure repair, wave wall and seawall repair, revetment repair, road and trail repair, bridge and abutment repair, stormwater system repair, building elevation, and building acquisition.
