Project: Biscuit Fire Recovery Project (EIS)

Project Status: In Litigation
Office Location: Medford
Resource Area: Grants Pass
NEPA #:   Record of Decision
Document Publish Date: 7/01/2004
Summary: Biscuit Fire: In 2002 the 500,000 acre Biscuit Fire burned approximately 9,000 acres of BLM land. The BLM is a cooperating agency with the Forest Service's Biscuit Recovery Project Environmental Impact Statement effort. This EIS addresses many post-fire management activities proposed for both Forest Service and BLM administered lands. Since the fire the BLM has also been pursuing a variety of project work in the fire area including reforestation, roadside hazard tree reduction, erosion control, removal of trees felled during fire line construction, and road closures. As additional resource protection and restoration needs are identified in the future, they will be addressed in separate NEPA analysis documents. Such projects might include noxious weed control, planting maintenance work, wildlife habitat improvement, road culvert and drainage improvement.
