AGENCY: Forest Service, USDA.
ACTION: Notice of Intent to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Pacific Southwest Region of the U.S. Forest Service proposes to prepare a supplemental EIS to the 2004 Sierra Nevada Framework EIS. This SEIS is intended to accomplish two narrow goals: (1) Analyze all the alternatives considered in the 2004 SEIS using the modeling techniques utilized for alternatives S1 and S2 in the 2004 SEIS; and (2) account for the new management objectives of reducing stand density for forest health, restoring and maintaining ecosystem structure and composition, and restoring ecosystems after severe wildfires and other large catastrophic events in all the alternatives evaluated. The purpose of the SEIS is to comply with two November 4, 2009 court orders from the Eastern District of California which require the preparation of this narrowly tailored SEIS.

 

DATES: The Draft SEIS is expected in early February 2010 and the public comment period will be open for 45 days. The supplemental environmental impact statement is expected by May 1, 2010.
