Environmental Assessment OR-06-026-006 Planning Completed
The project would restore and enhance the free-flowing natural and wet meadow characteristics of riparian meadows so hydrologic function can support the potential natural community, including plant species important to greater sage-grouse, and reliable clean drinking water would be available for livestock during the authorized season of use.

Finding of No Significant Impact,Decision Record OR-06-026-006 Planning Completed
Implement the proposed action which should allow the rangeland health standards and Trout Creek Mountain Allotment objectives to be met. The proposed action is to place a headbox in the spring that fills UNNSR (approximately 0.2-acre) so water can be piped to a new 1,200-gallon trough. The trough will be installed 500 feet northwest of the reservoir. Overflow water from the trough will be by an underground pipe back to the original riparian meadow system. The earthen fill of the reservoir will be left in place, so a pond with shoreline vegetation can develop. Approximately 3,900 feet of fence will be constructed around the reservoir and riparian meadow areas above and below UNNSR, excluding livestock from approximately 9 acres.
