Commission staff, with the U.S. Forest Service as a cooperating agency, has prepared a supplemental environmental assessment (SEA) for the project. The project is located on Willow Creek, South Fork Willow Creek, North Fork Willow Creek, Chilkoot Creek, and Chiquito Creek in the San Joaquin River Basin in Madera County, California.
