71503#71503 Abstract
The Dixie National Forest is seeking public input on the Pine Valley Wildlife Habitat Improvement Project. The proposed project is located within Washington and Iron Counties, Utah on the Pine Valley District of the Dixie National Forest (DNF). The Pine Valley Ranger District covers approximately 481,000 acres of which 250,000 acres are located within an Inventoried Roadless Area (IRA). An additional 55,000 acres are in designated wilderness. For this project, approximately 320,000 acres are under consideration for treatment. A blend of mechanical treatments, prescribed fire, and seeding would be used to treat selected vegetation in portions of the project area. Some of the treatments may occur in IRAs outside of wilderness areas. This announcement letter serves to initiate scoping, "an early and open process for determining the scope of issues to be addressed" (40 CFR 1501.7).

71483#71483 Abstract
The operator will drill, blast, load, haul, separate, and crush salt ore to produce various products. Soil will be salvaged and segregated. Overburden will be excavated, graded, and used for product storage. Ditches will divert run-on around the site, and retention ponds will retain surface runoff on-site. The access road will remain as a narrowed access road through the site to connect existing roads with existing two-track trails at lower elevations. The landowner has requested that some structures be left onsite, and the Division approves of this plan, conditional upon the structures being in good condition. All other facilities will either be removed, or demolished and removed. The benched highwall will have overall slopes of 1.3H:1V (37 degrees) or less both before and after reclamation, such as with bench dimensions of 20 feet in height and 30 feet in width. Highwall berms will be left above highwalls and roads above steep slopes. Material will be placed at the toe of the slopes and removed from the crest where possible to reduce the bench face angle. Overburden will be spread or left in place to cover 11.7 acres of salt-impacted areas. Some overburden dump slopes may remain at the angle-of-repose, which is acceptable considering surrounding natural slopes and vegetation. Topsoil will then be spread to a depth of seven inches on 3.3 acres of graded or flat overburden dump surfaces, after which these areas will be broadcast seeded. Seeding of overburden is planned, but revegetation test plot results will educate overburden revegetation plans. The impoundment associated with the backfilled sinkhole would retain appropriate amounts of stormwater for post-mining conditions (100 percent of runoff from a 1000-year, 20-day event) before it would spill into the next sinkhole. The Utah Division of Water Rights has indicated that a Stream Alteration Permit is not needed. A diversion ditch above the facilities and along the road will be allowed to remain, and the stormwater containment pond may be allowed to remain after reclamation. Other stormwater control structures will be regraded.

71423#71423 Abstract
Programmatic restoration of aspen stands on the Ashley National Forest outside of Wilderness. Aspen is a disproportionally important forest community in the Interior West, supporting significant biological diversity and providing increased water yields and ecosystem resiliency to fire. Aspen ecosystems can support a wide array of plant and animal species due to their high productivity and structural diversity. Many consider it the most important deciduous forest type in western North America. In addition, aspen stands play an increasingly important role in the suppression and management of wildfires because they can act as natural fuel breaks. Many aspen populations across the west are declining due to drought, ungulate browsing, and lack of disturbance, particularly fire, requiring active restoration efforts to maintain and improve aspen forest health in the region. The primary method for aspen reproduction is suckering from the clonal root system. Therefore, any decline in aspen is concerning because the loss of aspen presence is not easily recovered and may be permanent. The Ashley National Forest is home to large acreages of persistent and seral aspen communities; approximately 184,986 acres on the forest. This project will help maintain and improve the health of aspen communities across northern Utah and southwest Wyoming on the forest, preventing further decline.

71405#71405 Abstract
The Washington County Water Conservancy District (WCWCD) filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) St. George Field Office for a right-of-way (ROW) and a Recreation and Public Purposes (R&PP) Act lease on BLM-managed lands in Washington County, Utah for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the proposed Ash Creek Project and Toquer Reservoir Recreation Area (Project). The WCWCD s proposes to construct a new water system that would provide an alternate source of water for the Toquerville Secondary Water System (TSWS) and, through exchange, allow Toquerville Springs water, the current TSWS source, to be delivered as municipal drinking water in Toquerville, LaVerkin and Hurricane. From the base of the existing dam on Ash Creek Reservoir, the Project would install 18.8 miles of pipeline and associated facilities, continuing in a southerly direction to the proposed new reservoir and public recreation area at Anderson Junction. The Project would be developed on lands administered primarily by the BLM St. George Field Office, with additional areas of state lands administered by the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA) and private land also included. The sources of water for the Project would be surface flows from Ash Creek that are impounded in the Ash Creek Reservoir and in the Ash Creek watershed below the reservoir. The WCWCD has a water right (Water Right # 81-351, priority date 1956) to 10,000 acre-feet from the Ash Creek Reservoir but does not have a pipeline system in place to convey water from this reservoir. Surface flows in the tributary streams of Leap Creek, South Ash Creek, and Wet Sandy are fully appropriated water rights held by multiple entities. See Appendix F for a detailed list and analysis of water rights. Each of these tributaries has an existing diversion structure that has historically diverted water into open, unlined ditches for agricultural use. To conserve water, the WCWCD installed a pipeline from the diversion on Leap Creek to replace an open ditch in 2003 and upgraded the diversion structure on Wet Sandy and piped the open ditch in 2010. The proposed R&PP lease and subsequent patent area is for approximately 13 acres of BLM-administered lands for development of the Toquer Reservoir Recreation Area. The recreation area is located within the municipal boundary of Toquerville City, Washington County, Utah. The recreation area would provide an additional outdoor venue including camping, picnicking, and hiking as well as interpretive kiosk and overlook area. The Primary purpose of the proposed project: Conserve a portion of the surface run-off that is currently being lost to seepage in the Ash Creek Reservoir and pipe it to a new reservoir site that will more effectively store water and help ensure predictable water supplies to water rights holders and local communities; Minimize water losses to seepage and evapotranspiration by replacing open ditches with pressurized pipelines in Project Area; Conserve high quality potable water for human consumption (culinary uses), by substituting lower quality water for agricultural uses in the Project Area; Recharge the Navajo aquifer and provide for groundwater storage and purification, thereby conserving water for future use; and Provide for safe and enjoyable water-based public recreational uses of the proposed Toquer Reservoir, thereby benefitting local residents and visitors to the area.

71403#71403 Abstract
final environmental impact statement (EIS) o The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Service (USDA-APHIS) has prepared an updated environmental impact statement (EIS) for the grasshopper and Mormon cricket suppression program in 17 Western States. Grasshoppers and Mormon crickets are a natural component of rangeland in the western United States; however, under appropriate environmental conditions their numbers can reach levels that result in economic and environmental impacts to rangeland and adjacent agriculture crops. USDA-APHIS works cooperatively with Federal and State agencies to survey for grasshoppers and Mormon crickets, and under certain conditions will make an insecticide application to suppress populations. o The EIS updates the 2002 EIS with new tools and available data. The EIS evaluates three alternatives. No action; No suppression program; Adaptive management (preferred alternative).
