Coleville Office Wildfire Fuels Reduction Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The CDFW proposes to utilize CCC work crews to conduct a wildfire fuels reduction project on an approximately 6-acre area adjacent to CDFW facilities on the Wildlife Area. This project will help control the spread of wildfire by thinning trees and shrubs to create a mosaic of shrubs, forbs, and bare soil; reducing ladder fuels; clearing a fuel break on an existing road, and reducing vegetation occurring within 100 feet of structures to create defensible space. The project will benefit wildlife including the West Walker mule deer herd by reducing the risk of habitat Loss from a major fire event by eliminating continuous brush and pinyon pine fuel conditions, particularly in close proximity to Highway 395 and the urban interface in the nearby communities of Walker and Coleville. The work will be completed using hand tools, chainsaws, a chipper, and a tractor-mounted brush mower.
The project is Class 4, Section 15304, the project will result in minor alterations to CDFW land and vegetation on an officially designated Wildlife area to benefit wildlife and wildlife habitat resources. The project will not result in the taking of endangered, rare, or threatened plant or animal species or significant erosion and sedimentation of surface waters.
