Project Description:
The Carson City District Office, Stillwater Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing a fuels treatment project on BLM-administered lands located west of Middlegate, Nevada. The Earthquake Fuels Treatment would create a fire resistant strip of vegetation along approximately 10 miles of dirt road east of Fairview Peak, in Churchill County, Nevada. The size of the project area is 1,659 acres. The restoration strategy would include a prescribed fire application to remove the existing plant material, a chemical treatment to control the annual weed (cheatgrass) invasion and a reseeding effort to create a more fire resistant plant community. This project is part of a nation-wide initiative to protect communities that are considered at high risk from Wildfire damage. Middlegate is included on the list of at-risk communities found in Federal Register Volume 66, Number 3, 1/4/2001, and has been assigned a Moderate Hazard category in the 2004 Churchill County Wildfire Risk/Hazard Assessment Project.
Project Location:
The proposed project area is located along approximately 10 miles of a gravel/dirt road east of Fairview peak, in Churchill County, Nevada.
