Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) proposes to install two big game guzzlers in the Sheephole Valley Wilderness. Both proposed water developments would consist of a small dam, a pipeline, a buried 10,000 gallon storage tank, and a wildlife accessible subterranean drinker. Installation of the water developments would require the use of motorized vehicles and equipment within the Sheephole Valley Wilderness. Representatives of the Society for the Conservation of Bighorn Sheep (SCBS) would monitor the new artificial water sources twice each year for water level and quality. Other monitoring would consist of pellet transect, photographic data, and guzzler operation. The proposed water development system is anticipated to require little maintenance after the initial construction. Installation of these water developments is proposed to be completed in the Spring of 2003.
