Schedule of Proposed Actions

Each quarter, the Forests publish a Schedule of Proposed Actions or SOPA. The SOPA is an information guide for public involvement in the management of the Forests' natural resources.

The Fremont-Winema National Forest Programmatic Restoration Project decision will allow the Forest to play an active collaborative role with other agencies, the Klamath Tribes and various organizations in the development and implementation of future watershed restoration and resource improvement actions.

Fremont-Winema National Forest Current and Recent Projects

Under Analysis

  • CenturyLink Master Permits Renewal

    CenturyLink has a network of communication lines (telephone; fiber optic) spanning across the Forest. The permits authorizing this network have expired. CenturyLink has applied for two permits renewing all lines associated with expired permits.

  • Chiloquin Sewer project

    This project will connect the Chiloquin Ranger District to the town of Chiloquin's sewer line

  • Cox Creek Fish Screen

    This project will install a fish screen in Cox Creek to prevent native fish species from migrating down a diversion ditch rather than the natural stream course. The screen will be in place yearly between April 1 and Sept 30.

  • Dog Lake (303) Road Decommissioning

    The Fremont Winema NF is proposing to decommission approximately 3.1 miles of the 4020303 road along the east side of Dog Lake due to poor road conditions, hydrological issues, unstable soils, danger trees, and repeated need for maintenance

  • Lake of the Woods Resort Expansion Project

    I am proposing several actions at Lake of the Woods Resort including road and transportation improvements, dock renovation at the Resort marina, installation of park model cabins, addition of RV sites, and remodeling of the Marina building.

  • Midstate Pole Replacement

    Midstate Electric needs to replace five 45-foot poles. All the poles will be replaced within the same spot except pole 96003 which will be moved over two feet. The work will be completed as soon as possible and will be finished within the same day.

  • ODOT-Wastina Drilling Sites

    Oregon Department of Transportation is in need of a rock quarry material source for aggregate production to service the section of Highway OR31. ODOT requests authorization to conduct evaluative drilling on USFS land at two sites.

  • Riverbed Butte Guzzler Replacement

    This project will replace the guzzler that was destroyed during the Bootleg Fire. Guzzler systems are situated on the Fremont National Forest in areas documented to lack abundance of water for wildlife species living and moving through the area.

  • South East Zone Natural Boundary Fencing

    The Bootleg fire removed natural boundaries necessary to control livestock movements. This project proposes reconstructing up to 12 miles of four strand barbed wire fence. The work will be completed by a qualified fence contractor.

  • Spring Creek Road Project

    Spring Creek Road is a small timber sale planned to treat the Lobert stands remaining between Hill IRTC and the 242 fire.I am proposing to extend vegetation treatment to this small lodgepole stand, following the same PDCs and BMPs outlined in Lobert.

  • Winter Rim Zone Natural Boundary Fencing

    The Bootleg fire removed natural boundaries necessary to control livestock movements. This project proposes reconstructing up to 2.5 miles of four strand barbed wire fence. The work will be completed by a qualified fence contractor.

Analysis Completed

  • Hog Creek Oregon Spotted Frog Road Decommissioning

    The Chiloquin Ranger District proposes to decommission three segments of roads within the Hog Creek system, 4520-278; 4520-270 (between 4519 and 4520); and 4526-935, totaling about 0.9 miles. All roads proposed for decommissioning are level 1 roads.

On Hold

  • Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Access Road Improvement

    The proposed project would issue a road use permit with BPA to authorize road reconstruction maintenance on NFDR Roads 2901-013 and 2901-019 on the Silver Lake Ranger District to ensure that the BPA communications relay facility remains accessible.

  • Dry Prairie Spring Excavation

    The Forest Service proposes to allow the permittee of the Yainax Butte Allotment to excavate the identified springs to find water and develop a water system off the spring to provide water to the cattle on the south end of the Dry Prairie pasture.
