3 Ton of slash burned correlates directly with the level of omissions.
4 Cumulative effects, all ownerships.
5 The planning area was divided into five analytical watersheds. Four of those, where BLM administers substantial acreage, were analyzed.
6 + = Positive effect, - = negative effect, 0 = no change.
7 Yes, use would be met; No, use would not be met: For uses not listed, projected 10 year demand would be met under all alternatives.
