LIVE OAK WATERLINE - SUP
A 30-year term special use permit, to install an underground water transmission line along-side and underneath the existing Old State Road. The trench will be approximately 900 feet long, 24 inches wide, and 42 inches deep.
PINE RIDGE FUELS REDUCTION PROJECT
The Pine Ridge Fuels Reduction and Maintenance Project is located in the Hume Lake Ranger District of the Sequoia National Forest. In the Pine Ridge area, the Highway Fire of 2001 scorched trees up to 50 feet off of the ground and eventually killed trees up to 20 inches in diameter. Many fallen trees have added to the brush kill and pine needle litter. There is a need to reduce the amount of dead brush, dead trees, and ladder fuels that have built up since the Highway Fire. This high fuel load has compromised the effectiveness of fire suppression efforts in the defense and threat zones of the wildland urban intermix. There is also a need to continue to re-establish a more natural fire return interval in the project area.
PIUTE MOUNTAIN MEADOW RESTORATION PROJECT
The Piute Mountain Meadow Restoration Project includes restoration treatments in French and Mack Meadows, located in the Piute Mountains of the Kern River Ranger District. The ranger district proposes to install and plant willow fascines, install bank erosion pins, install a floodplain relief culvert where Road 28S24 crosses Bright Start Creek below Mack Meadow, remove a ditch across the road and overside drain, and install a fence to keep cattle out of the meadows during the restoration work.
