within a specifically defined geographic area, that the commission,
by regulation, after public hearings, and by a two-thirds vote of its
members, has described or identified and with respect to which the

adverse effect, either individually or cumulatively, on the resources
of the marsh and that such exclusion will not impair the ability of
any local government or district or the Solano County Local Agency
Formation Commission to prepare its component of the local protection
program.



29509.  (a) When immediate action by a person performing a public
service is required to protect life and public property from imminent
danger, or to restore, repair, or maintain public works, levees,
dikes, utilities, or services destroyed, damaged, or interrupted by
natural disaster, serious accident, or in other cases of emergency,
no permit from the commission shall be required prior to commencing
