Five Mile Fire Salvage Project
Recover value of fire-caused tree mortality by salvaging burned trees on approximately 20 acres adjacent to the Hat Point road.
Bird Track TSI and Maintenance Burn
Precommercial thinning and burning of overstocked pine stands in the Spring Creek area along FS Roads 2100, 2100-400, and 2100-950. Prescribed natural fuels underburn within and adajacent to previous Spring Creek Fire.
Bull Run Subwatershed Restoration Project Phase I
The project will improve fish habitat on Corral, Deep & Channel Creeks which are tributaries to Bullrun Creek and the North Fork of the John Day River. Activities will improve floodplain function, water storage, fish passage and habitat complexity.
Cove Water Pipeline Replacement Project
Remove/salvage 5530 ft 18" water pipeline from diversion structure on Bridge Cr to diversion structure on Mill Cr, and install approx 5530 ft 18" HDPE pipe, and associated required access and road work, for City of Cove Special Use Permit
East Face Vegetation Management Project
Mechanical thinning, slash busting, prescribed fire, hand piling and burning to manage and improve vegetation and treat fuels near wildland urban interface and private/public land interface. May include some road construction, maintenance, closures.
East Sheep FS Road 5184 Project
A bottomless arch would replace the bridge which was over East Sheep Creek on 5184 to eliminate userbuilt roads and OHV use in East Sheep Creek. 2.9 miles of 5184 and 3.9 miles of road 5182 will be maintained. 3 more culverts would be installed.
Limber Jim Muir Fuels Reduction Project
Noncommercial fuel reduction,west boundary LaGrande City Watershed and key access routes to reduce down fuel and facilitate fire suppression. May include precommercial thinning, firewood areas, slash busting, prescribed fire, small commercial harvest
Lower Imnaha Rangeland Analysis
Authorize commercial livestock grazing on four allotments (Lone Pine, Cow Creek, Rhodes Creek, and Toomey Allotments) located in the lower portion of the Imnaha River.
Lower Joseph Creek Restoration Project
The Lower Joseph Creek Restoration Project proposes to restore, maintain and enhance forest and rangeland resilience to natural disturbance and contribute to the local economic and social vitality of the area.
North Pine Creek Channel Restoration
Restore portions of North Pine Creek channel, adjacent to Forest Road 39. Affected area is less than one acre, and is approximately 1150 ft long by 26 ft long.
West Sumpter Fuels Maintenance Project
The Whitman Ranger District is proposing maintenance burning of previously treated forested stands particularly stands in the Wildland Urban Interface portions of the District.
Beaver Creek Fish Passage Project
Provide fish passage in Beaver Cr by placing concrete weirs in spillway, rock grade-control structures at intake, and rock and weirs by diversion pool. Place rock to grade channel in Elk, Cove, W Fk Beaver Cr intakes. Install fish screens at intakes
Corral Creek Road Relocation and Restoration
This project does NOT have an objection period because no parties have standing to object. Ignore any posted Objection Start Dates. Obliterate, replace,and reconstruct this road, and replace 3 culverts
Sandbox Vegetation Management
A combination of mechanical thinning, slash busting, hand piling/burning, and prescribed burning would be used to mange vegetation and fuels within the area. Benefits include healthier stands, reduced fire behavior potential and enhance public uses.
51 Road Reconstruction
4.5 miles of the 51 road would be reconstructed. This road is narrow with blind corners and no shoulders. Lanes will be widened, sharp corners will be straightened, and the road surface will be improved.
Muir Creek Culvert Replacement
This project would replace an undersized, partial fish passage barrier with a properly sized open arch or box culvert. A slight channel relocation would occur to fit the new culvert.
Riparian Livestock Exclusion by Wood II
This project would exclude livestock from streams by placing wood within the riparian area, allowing the riparian area to recover and streambank stabilization. Listed fish species are present.
Starkey Allotment Management
Construct boundary fence and change kind and class of livestock grazed at Red Fir Spring. Construct boundary fence at Briggs pasture within the Starkey allotment boundary. The area is currently not designed for grazing with pasture rotation.
Tamarack Stay Project
The purpose of this project is to provide dead western larch snags for stay and jack material for livestock exclosure and pasture fences. This project is being cancelled from the SOPA list, because it was entered on the SOPA list in error.
