27 Road System Fuel Break CE

Project Summary

A Categorical Exclusion (CE) is a class of actions that a Federal agency has determined do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment and for which, therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is normally required.

“The proposed action will create a 1,000’ fuel break along areas of the 27 Road system (approximately 2,900 acres total). Broadly, a combination of commercial thinning, non-commercial thinning, and fuels treatments will be used. The proposed action would not construct any system roads. Road maintenance would occur on all roads needed along a timber haul route. Temporary roads may be constructed if determined to be needed.”
