Project: Draft Livestock Stream-Crossing Construction

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: Roseburg
Resource Area: South River
NEPA #: OR-105-07-08  FONSI/Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 6/22/2007
Summary: Norton Creek, Olalla Creek and Fate Creek all provide spawning and rearing habitat for the Oregon Coast coho salmon, and are consequently designated as Essential Fish Habitat under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1996. Implementation of the proposed action would improve the quality of Essential Fish Habitat in and downstream of the project areas. Re-establishment of trees will provide shade and a source of large wood for in-stream recruitment in the long term. Re-vegetation of disturbed and eroded streamside areas will reduce sedimentation. Combined, these factors will increase the productivity of macro-invertebrate populations that provide prey for fish, and increase the quality of rearing habitat for juvenile fish. This project would not have any significant adverse impacts to Essential Fish Habitat, within the context of 40 CFR 1508.27(b)(9).
