Document Title
Waste Discharge Requirements for the South Shore Fuel Reduction and Healty Forest Restoration Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
National Forest urban lots and National Forest-Managed lands in El Dorado County
Document Description
The project will reduce the risk of high intensity wildlife & restoration of healthy forest conditions on National Forest Lands in the urban wildland intermix (WUI) in order to provide a defense zone between the Forest and urban and/or suburban development. The project area extends from the SE shore of Cascade Lake eastward to the States of California and Nevada border and extending from the south shore of Lake Tahoe southward to include the CA State Highway 89 corridor. Reduction of hazardous fuels will be accomplished by thinning to remove ladder fuels and reduce over-crowding, removal of excessive fuels on the ground, and prescribed burning. Restoration of healthy forest conditions will be accomplished by removal of conifer encroachment from meadows and aspen stands, retention of Jeffrey and Sugar Pine species, and thinning to improve resistance to crown fire, drought, insects, and disease.
