OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT
PG&E Herbicide Vegetation Management Program
Plumas National Forest
Mt Hough Ranger District
The Forest Service is seeking comments on the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) Herbicide Vegetation Management Program on Transmission Line Right-of-Ways (ROWs) (PG&E Herbicide VMP) project which proposed to use herbicides within 10 existing transmission line ROWs. While the 10 ROW's are either owned and operated or maintained by PG&E, they are within the jurisdiction of the PNF under Special Use Authorization. PG&E proposes to use herbicides on National Forest System (NFS) lands to control unwanted vegetation within the ROWs. A maximum of 400 acres would be treated annually.  The Caribou Road component of PG&E's proposed Herbicide Vegetation Management Program EA requires further discussion and planning to balance the needs for public safety and vegetation management with the concerns of recreationists. Therefore PG&E removed Caribou Road from the proposed herbicide program until a plan can be developed that addresses the challenges of vegetation management and the need for unobstructed pedestrian walkways and designated pullouts along the road.   The objective for the use of herbicides is to establish compatible vegetation (and eliminate incompatible vegetation) within the ROWs. Typically, the desired vegetation structure would take 5-7 years to establish with the use of herbicides.
The document can be accessed on the Forest Service Website at: (www.fs.fed.us/r5/plumas). Select the "Land and Resources Management" tab, then select "Browse through the Forest Projects," and then find the project name "PG&E Herbicide VMP," or a paper copy can be sent by requesting it from Erika Brenzovich, Project Leader, Mt. Hough Ranger District, 39696 Highway 70, Quincy, CA, 95971 (telephone: (530) 283-7620; e-mail: ebrenzovich@fs.fed.us).
This project is subject to comment pursuant to 36 CFR 218, Subparts A and B. Planning for this project began under the appeal process (36 CFR 215).
