Project: Rabbit Mountain Fire LSR Recovery

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: none
Resource Area: South River
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-R050-2014-0004-EA  Finding of No Significant Impact
Document Publish Date: 3/26/2015
Summary: The Rabbit Mountain Fire LSR Recovery Environmental Assessment considered one action alternative for the proposed actions. The selected alternative, Alternative Two, will apply roadside, railroad right-of-way, and quarry safety treatments on up to 524 acres, roadside fuels reduction on up to 138 acres, habitat restoration on roughly 1,392 acres, and decommissioning of approximately three (3.0) miles of road within the Rabbit Mountain Fire LSR Recovery project area. The project area is in the Late-Successional Reserve land use allocation on BLM-administered lands within T. 31 S., R. 7 W.; T. 31 S., R. 8 W.; T. 32 S., R. 7 W.; and T. 32 S., R. 8 W.

NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-R050-2014-0004-EA  Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 3/26/2015
Summary: The Rabbit Mountain Fire Safe Cow Decision Record implements approximately eight (8) roadside safety treatment areas, three (3) railroad right-of-way safety treatment areas, and one (1) quarry safety treatment area, burned under moderate to high severity during the Rabbit Mountain Fire. These safety treatment areas total approximately 75 acres. Only trees that are dead with imminent and likely failure potentials will be felled and removed. Planting of roadside hazard tree treatment areas will occur, where needed. Activity fuels along roadside safety treatment areas will be machine-piled at landings and burned, accounting for up to 13 acres of activity fuels reduction. Up to 20 acres of small fuels reduction will occur along roads identified for roadside safety treatments, within the first 50 feet of the road edge, where practicable. The project area is in the Late-Successional Reserve land use allocation on BLM-administered lands within T. 31 S., R. 7 W.; T. 31 S., R. 8 W.; and T. 32 S., R. 8 W.

Document Publish Date: 2/14/2014
Summary: This is a correction to the E-mail address in the scoping letter. The South River Field Office is preparing the Rabbit Mountain Fire Late-Successional Reserves Recovery Environmental Assessment (EA). The South River Field Office interdisciplinary team will be analyzing actions to address safety along roads, along a railroad right-of-way, and adjacent to forest improvements (i.e. Dutchman Lookout, fire water source, and quarries); 2) hazards caused by fuel loading; and 3) habitat restoration in northern spotted owl home ranges affected by the Rabbit Mountain Fire. The South River Field Manager is seeking public input during this scoping period to help identify any issues or concerns specific to this project.
