NEPA #: OR-104-06-09  Environmental Assessment
Document Publish Date: 2/27/2007
Summary: This environmental assessment analyzes the environmental impacts associated with the Swiftwater Field Office's proposal for a commercial thinning project. The proposed commercial thinning harvest would occur on four scattered units (approximately 151 acres) of mid-seral, second-growth forest located in the Elk Creek Fifth-Field Watershed in Sections 14, 23 and 27; T22S, R07W; W.M. Of the 151 acres of treatment, approximately 2 acres would be removed for the development of spur roads.
