The Pahvant Interagency Fuels Reduction Project is one of the demonstration projects for the President’s Healthy Forest Initiative. The BLM Fillmore Field Office and the Fishlake National Forest Fillmore Ranger District are proposing to reduce hazardous fuels on approximately 14,329 acres along the west side of the Pahvant Mountain Range, in the vicinity of Scipio, Holden, Fillmore and Meadow, Utah. The purpose of the proposed action is to change fire behavior conditions near these communities to reduce the risk of uncharacteristically intense and severe wildfire and secondary effects such as flooding, to these communities and the environment while providing for firefighter safety. Treatments would begin in 2003 and are anticipated to be completed by 2008.
