IMPORTANT FOREST MANAGEMENT PLAN INFORMATION - We need your input!
- Forest service plan has to have all comments submitted by June 29. The plan will be set for the next 20+ years. NCTU council is offering their position. The important parts are sediment from the roads flowing into the streams due to backlog of maintenance, culverts being set to repair a max of 2/ year which creates problems for fish to move. Since there are so many culverts that need to be addressed, streams will suffer for decades. Buffer Zones need to be increased for intermittent and ephemeral streams. Currently it is only 15 feet. We recommend 25 feet for ephemeral and 50 feet for intermittent to guard against siltation and temperature control. Please read in chapter 3, the geographic areas where we fish to ask our members for input. https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd698555.pdf
- Read chapter 3 from pages 138 on and see what geographic areas pertain to us? Pisgah is the main one. Comments link:
