The Forest Supervisor is withdrawing the FEIS and Draft ROD, effective July 22, 2014.
Reasons are, some modifications proposed were not analyzed in the document, and some ground disturbing activities such as a different staging area (land owners request), trail segments reinstated, but with modified stream crossings, and or additional restoration work could reduce potential sedimentation and ( we hit the jackpot, the lottery and the holy grail all in one fell swoop with this phrase) actually improve hydrological conditions over present state ( my objections and mitigation solutions). Looking for more field visits with objectors to understand concerns and possible solutions.
Also the current wildfires are in the area of proposed trails, and there is a need to evaluate the changed condition this presents.
We will be working with the ID team and the Forest Supervisor on the Supplemental Draft EIS in fiscal year 2015, after the fire season.
