Project: Aquatic & Riparian Habitat Enhancement

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: Medford
Resource Area: Glendale
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-M080-2011-005-DNA  Documentation of NEPA Adequacy
Document Publish Date: 6/16/2011
Summary: A Determination of NEPA Adequacy conforms that an action is adequately analyzed in the existing Revised Aquatic and Riparian Habitat Enhancement Environmental Assessment (DOI-BLM-OR-M000-2009-0004-EA). The Glendale Field Manager has selected to implement Alternative 2 of the above stated EA, which would improve fish habitat within Fizzleout Creek, Quines Creek, Riffle Creek and Rattlesnake Creek by restoring a more natural channel complexity. This would be accomplished by adding log structures to create instream and off channel habitat that benefit fish and other aquatic fauna. The project is located within the Glendale Resource Area. The locations are T32S, R4W, Section 21 (Fizzleout Creek), T32S, R5W, Section 35 (Quines), T32S, R8W, Section 27 (Riffle Creek), and T33S, R7W, Section 11 (Rattlesnake Creek).

Summary: The BLM will fall trees into fish-bearing streams in the Evans Creek watershed. Trees will be felled at up to 43 sites to improve fish habitat on up to 12 miles of streams. Trees selected for falling range from 10 inches DBH to 35 inches DBH. Installing large woody debris into Evans Creek will improve spawning and rearing habitat for coho salmon.
