Project: DOI-BLM-OR-P000-2011-0024-EA Headcut Stabilization

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: none
Resource Area: Prineville DO
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-P000-2011-0024-EA   FONSI/Decision Record

Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has completed an Environmental Assessment (EA No.DOI-BLM-OR-P000-2011-0024-EA) that analyzes the effects of one action alternative to improve watershed health district-wide by halting the advancement of headcuts up stream corridors. The alternative proposes a combination of large rock or wood placement and bioengineering methods in order to stabilize the headcuts. Actions could occur on up to 10 headcuts per year but would likely encompass approximately two per year within the district due to budget constraints. The EA is incorporated by reference in this Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).

Document Publish Date: 11/04/2011
Summary: This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the Prineville District Field Office in order to improve watershed health district-wide by halting the advancement of headcuts up riparian corridors. A headcut is an erosional feature found in streams where a sudden change in streambed elevation occurs, generally resembling a waterfall or a small cliff face if the channel is dry. This action is needed because many streams within the district have headcuts that may result in down-cutting which threatens the integrity of the affected riparian communities.
