Environmental Assessment DOI-BLM-OR-M000-2013-0004-EA Planning Completed
The Environmental Assessment (EA) for Aquatic and Riparian Habitat Enhancement is available for public review. This programmatic EA analyzes the effects of a suite of watershed enhancement activities needed to improve aquatic habitat. The broad purpose of the EA is to expedite watershed restoration and improve aquatic habitat. As specific restoration needs are identified by project teams, watershed analysis, or public input, the projects will be evaluated against the activities and effects identified and assessed in the programmatic EA. The EA covers projects located on both private and federal lands within the Medford District Area. A Decision Record is expected to be signed in mid to late April; projects consistent with the stipulations in the EA would then be implemented under a Determination of NEPA Adequacy.

Finding of No Significant Impact,Decision Record DOI-BLM-OR-M000-2013-0004-EA Planning Completed
The Decison Record (DR)and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) have been signed by the Medford District Manager to implement the Aquatic and Riparian Habitat Enhancement Project (DOI-BLM-OR-M000-2013-0004-EA). Project activities include: improving the condition of riparian stands; enhancing instream habitat and channel stability; and controlling road-related runoff and sediment production. Projects will be evaluated and those consistent with the stipulations in the EA would be implemented under a Determination of NEPA Adequacy (DNA). DNAs would be posted on the Medford District BLM website.

The Grants Pass Resource Area of the Medford District BLM is authorizing streambank restoration of a channel that drains into Studhorse Creek. The BLM will correct a diversion that is causing active erosion and put the water back into the natural channel at T40S-R08W-Section 33 and 34.

The Grants Pass Resource Area of the Medford District BLM is authorizing instream restoration work for Panther Creek and Elk Valley Creek. The BLM will improve stream channel conditions for Coho salmon and steelhead salmon by improving stream habitat complexity. The Panther Creek improvements will be in T31S, R09W, Section 27. Elk Valley Creek improvements will be in T31S, R09W, Section 25 and in T31S, R08W, Section 19.

Powell Creek Instream Restoration DNA DOI-BLM-OR-M070-2015-0018-DNA Planning Completed
This Grants Pass Field Office proposes to improve fish habitat by placing large wood jams into the Powell Creek stream channel. This will be accomplished by yarding logs into streams. Approximately 250 logs in 50 log jams will be placed along a 2.5 mile, non-continuous reach of Powell Creek. Cables will be used to pull logs into place with a mobile yarder operated from existing roads. Logs for this project will be obtained by falling hazard trees along BLM roads on BLM administered lands using the Hazardous Tree Felling/Removal within the Medford District BLM Categorical Exclusion (DOI-BLM-OR-M000-2014-001-CX). Only trees identified as hazardous by the Field Guide for Danger Tree Identification and Response (Toupin et al. 2008) will be felled. If needed, additional trees may be obtained from culled decks that were created from logging slash leftover from the 2014 Douglas Complex Recovery Project (DOI-BLM-OR-M070-2014-006-EA).

Ninemile Large Wood Placement Project DOI-BLM-OR-M060-2015-0020-DNA Planning Completed
The Ashland Resource Area of the Medford District Bureau of Land Management (BLM) plans to implement the Ninemile Creek Large Wood Placement Project to improve habitat in Ninemile Creek by placing woody material in the stream. The project involves placing approximately 30 pieces of wood and no more than five downed snags or blowdown pieces with rootwads into the stream channel. The trees have been previously cut for another restoration project on Thompson Creek. The project activities were analyzed under the Aquatic and Riparian Habitat Enhancement Environmental Assessment (2014).
