Withdrawal of Notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement.
On May 9, 2006, Federal Register (Volume 71, Number 89, [Page 26921-26923]), the USDA Forest Service, Plumas National Forest announced its intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to eradicate populations of the noxious weed tall whitetop (Lepidium Iatifoliuin), along the Middle Fork of the Feather River. The proposed Federal action in this EIS was to use a three-step process to ensure the successful eradication of tallwhite top. One of the steps involved the use of herbicides. The EIS would have evaluated the environmental effects associated with these actions and any reasonable alternatives.
The notice of intent to prepare an EIS is withdrawn. The Plumas National Forest will continue the NEPA process by preparing an Environmental Assessment to evaluate the environmental effects of a new proposed action.Start Further Info
