Document Description
This project is a portion of a larger effort to reduce the risk of a catastrophic fire by improving fire resiliency through vegetation treatments within and adjacent to the community of Mammoth Lakes. The larger project involves a cooperative effort with the Mammoth Lakes Fire Protection District (MLFPD), Mammoth Lakes Community Water District, Inyo National Forest, Mono County, Town of Mammoth Lakes, Mammoth Lakes Trails - Public Access, and University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) Valentine Reserve, under the guidance of Mammoth Lakes Fire Safe Council. The project would perform fuels reduction treatments on ~ 65 acres. Any activities on lands owned by the USFS are being received under a separate NEPA document, and so this document analyzes only those activities that would be performed within the Town of Mammoth Lakes. Private Contractors would perform fuels reduction and removal. Cal Fire would perform site inspections and provide advice and guidance to private property owners. MLFD would assist property owners with slash disposal through chipping and disposal services. All tree removal would be subject to review and approval of a tree removal permit, per Town of Mammoth Lakes regulations. California Department of Forestry guidelines would be employed as the primary framework for proposed practices for fuel reduction activities undertaken.
