BLM Issues Decision on Summit Spring Reconstruction Project

Carson City – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Carson City District, Stillwater Field Office, has completed the final Environmental Assessment (EA) and issued a Decision Record for the the Summit Spring Reconstruction Project. Summit Spring is about 20 miles southeast of Yerington, Nev., in Mineral County.

The proposed action includes the following four components:

• Replace an existing four (4) strand barbed wire fence with a 3 strand cable and pipe fence;
• Replace the spring head box, pipeline and water trough and re-designed to allow for an effective water supply system;
• Move the water trough closer to the spring box and farther away from the road allowing the wild horses a larger escape route if startled by traffic.
