EA - Environmental Assessment
Document Description
The Corps would allow Los Angeles City fire staff (Captain Rich Cotterall, Wildland Fuel Management Unit, at 818-756-9674) to use any technical information gathered during this scoping, and to rough out and construct a 10-ft. abandoned trail areas within this lower Basin, 40-acre parcel. In a dry period during winter months of 2006, a dirt access road for fire-fighting in the area would be created with heavy equipment. Any project rubble would be suitably disposed. Duration of the construction project is approximately 2 weeks. Water trucks will be used for dust control in all areas of activity. Marginal habitat in riparian areas within a quarter mile of the roadway project wil be incuded in future City weed management/control planning and implementation. For any direct impacts to native vegetation, a 3:1 enhancement ratio-comprising an area three times that of the road's footprint upon habitat - is strongly recommended to off-set adverse project effects to the fine native habitat at this location. The enhancement would consist of invasive weed treatment in nearby natural areas which have been identified by agency/local stakeholders.
