Project: McFall/Potter Creek Density Management and Aquatic Habitat Restoration

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: none
Resource Area: Marys Peak
NEPA #: OR080-06-12  Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 2/20/2008
Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has conducted an environmental analysis for the McFall Creek Density Management (DM) Project 1, which is documented in the McFall/Potter Creek Density Management and Aquatic Habitat Restoration Environmental Assessment (EA# OR080-06-12) and the associated project file. The proposed action is to thin 317 acres of 72 to 79-year-old conifer stands within Adaptive Management Areas (AMA) and Riparian Reserve (RR) Land Use Allocations (LUAs) within the Northern Coast Range Adaptive Management Area (NCAMA). A Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was signed on November 20, 2007 and the EA and FONSI were then made available for public review. The decision documented in this Decision Rationale (DR) is based on the analysis documented in the EA. This decision authorizes the implementation of only those activities directly related to and included within the McFall Creek timber sale.

Summary: This EA (Environmental Assessment) discloses the predicted environmental effects of three projects on federal land located in Township 8 South, Range 8 West, Section 35 and Township 8 South, Range 7 West, Section 31, Willamette Meridian and within the Upper Siletz River watershed. Project 1 (McFall Creek Density Management) is a proposal to increase structural diversity and implement the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) DMS (Density Management and Riparian Buffer Study) on approximately 317 acres of forested land. Project 2 (Potter Creek Density Management) is a proposal to increase structural diversity on approximately 170 acres of mid-seral forested land. Project 3 (Aquatic Habitat Restoration) is a proposal to develop or enhance aquatic habitat. The actions would occur within AMA (Adaptive Management Area) and RR (Riparian Reserve) LUAs (Land Use Allocations) within the NCAMA (Northern Coast Range Adaptive Management Area).
