Scotts Flat Reservoir Fuels Treatment Phase 3
NOD - Notice of Determination
The SNC would provide funding to the Nevada Irrigation District to implement wildfire hazard reduction treatment on 82 acres of NID property featuring mixed conifer forest near Scotts Flat Reservoir between NID facilities and the nearby Cascade Shores community. This project would include hand and mechanical thinning, chipping and spreading of dense understory vegetation and small to medium diameter trees to protect forest health, water quality, air quality, and to reduce fire risk to this area.
All work would be performed in compliance with the CA Forest Practices Act and the adopted Timber Harvest Plan for the property (THP No. 2-13-031-NEV, Scotts Flat), approved by the CALFIRE on October 4, 2013 in consultation with CDFW and the RWQCB. Mechanical treatments would be completed by a Licensed Timber Operator under the direction of a Registered Professional Forester. CALFIRE will monitor compliance with the terms of the THP. SNC has reviewed the THP approved by CALFIRE for the project, which includes measures for protection of biological resources and water quality, and has independently determined that the project would not result in significant adverse environmental impacts.
