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.
Cold Canal Vegetation Management
Reduce fuel loading and return stands to their historic structure while recovering biomass for local industry in the vicinity of the Canal Fire and Cold Springs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
OTEC Starkey Powerline Relocation Special Use Permit
Oregon Trail Electric Cooperative is proposing to relocate approx.900 feet of existing underground power line on National Forest land. The proposed work will be confined to the existing 20 ft. right-of-way authorized in the current special use permit
Verizon Special Use Permit Renewal
Renew the current Special Use Permit for Verizon, which authorizes their infrastructure at the Mt. Emily communication site. Verizon's current Special Use Permit expires on 12/31/2016.
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
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.
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.
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.
