The Upper Moklumne River Watershed Authority (UMRWA) requests $500,000 from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy to implement the Pumpkin Hollow Restoration Project. The Project involves forest management activities on 971 acres of the Stanislaus National Forest to reduce wildfire risk, to prevent insect and disease outbreaks, to improve forest and watershed resiliency, and to improve water quality. Project activities would include hand and mechanical forest treatments for forest and wildlife restoration, aspen and meadow restoration, plantation thinning, and construction of fuel breaks. The project includes site sensitive treatments to protect wildlife and wildlife habitat, and a comprehensive suite of Best Management Practices to protect water quality and avoid potential erosion impacts. SNC has reviewed the IS/ND prepared by the UMRWA for the Project, and has independently determined that the Project would not result in significant adverse environmental impacts.
