Document Publish Date: 12/19/2014
Summary: The Bureau of Land Management, Tillamook Resource Area, has prepared a Fining of No Significant Impact (FONSI) document for the Walker Creek Terrestial Restoration Project as described in the EA for the project. The EA and an unsigned version of the FONSI were made available to the public for review from March 12, 2014 to April 11, 2014. The BLM received two comment letters as a result of the public review. The Tillamook Field Manager considered the comments and the information contained in the EA to determine that the Walker Creek Terrestrail Restoration Project would not have significant effects on the human environment beyond those already analyzed in the Salem District Resource Management Plan EIS (40 CFR 1508.13). The Walker Creek Terrestrial Restoration Project FONSI does not authorize any actions. If you have any questions, please call Andy Pampush at (503) 815-1143
