Document Description
Using Sierra Nevada Conservancy grant funding, the Amador Fire Safe Council will implement fuel reduction treatments on federal land under Bureau of Land Management (BLM) jurisdiction. Treatments will include at least 13 acres of hand thinning work to create a continuous fuelbreak system. The work is part of the larger Tiger Creek Fuel Break and Watershed Protection project, funded under SNC grant 1200. The treatments aim to reduce the risk of catastrophic fire to nearby communities, protect water quality, and increase forest resiliency. This phase of work was analyzed under a BLM NEPA Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the environmental consequences of implementing the Tiger Creek South Fuel Break Project (CA-180-12-57). The final Decision Record for the EA/Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was signed by the BLM on September 27, 2012.
