Notice of intent to prepare environmental impact statement. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Wild Cramer Forest Health and Fuels Reduction Project to harvest timber, reduce hazardous forest fuels, prescribe burn, and reconstruct and construct permanent roads within the project area. The project area is approximately 10 miles southwest of Kalispell, Flathead County, Montana. The project area consists of a total of 30,727 acres, encompasses the Blacktail Mountain Ski Area and contains the following drainages: Wild Bill, Truman, Emmons, Patrick, Cramer, Bierney, and Stoner Creeks. The location of the project area is Township 26 and 27 North, and Range 21, 211⁄2, and 22 West. DATES: Comments concerning the scope of the analysis must be received by December 1, 2010. The draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) is expected in September 2011. No date has yet been determined for filing the final environmental impact statement (FEIS). ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Wild Cramer Project, Swan Lake District Ranger, 200 Ranger Station Road, Bigfork, MT 59911. Comments may also be sent via e-mail to commentsnorthern-flathead-swan-lake@fs.fed.us with ‘‘Wild Cramer Project’’ in the subject line and must be submitted in MSWord (*.doc) or rich text format (*.rtf), or via facsimile to (406) 387– 3889.

Proposed Action The Forest Service proposes to harvest timber through application of a variety of harvest methods, including regeneration harvest (clearcut with reserves, seed tree with reserves, and shelterwood with reserves) on 3,489 acres and intermediate harvest (commercial and non-commercial thin and sanitation) on 1,511 acres for a total commercial harvest on approximately 5,000 acres of forestland. In addition, an estimated 3,700 acres of sapling thinning and 362 acres of prescribed ecosystem burning are proposed. Use of existing and construction of temporary and permanent (specified) roads would be needed to access timber harvest areas. An estimated 13 miles of specified road and 14 miles of temporary road would be constructed, some of which will be on existing, historic templates. An additional 166 miles of existing National Forest System roads would receive either road reconstruction or pre-haul maintenance. Best Management Practices would be applied to all temporary roads constructed and roads temporarily opened, as well as all system roads used in association with this project for access and product removal. Planting PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 conifer seedlings would also be included in this project. Possible Alternatives Alternative A is the No-Action Alternative in which none of the proposed activities would be implemented. Alternative B, the Proposed Action described above, was developed by the Interdisciplinary Team to respond to the purpose and need for action and to comply with the Flathead Forest Plan. At least one additional action alternative will be developed which will examine varying levels and locations for the proposed activities to achieve the proposal’s purposes, as well as to respond to the issues and other resource values. All proposed activities are outside the boundaries of any roadless area or any areas considered for inclusion to the National Wilderness System as recommended by the Flathead National Forest Plan or by any past or present legislative wilderness proposals. Responsible Official The Responsible Official is Chip Weber, Forest Supervisor, Flathead National Forest, 650 Wolfpack Way, Kalispell, Montana 59901. The Forest Supervisor will make a decision regarding this proposal considering the comments and responses, environmental consequences discussed in the final EIS, and applicable laws, regulations, and policies. The decision and rationale for the decision will be documented in a Record of Decision. Nature of the Decision To Be Made The DEIS for the Wild Cramer Forest Health and Fuels Reduction Project will evaluate site-specific issues, consider management alternatives, and analyze the potential effects of the proposed action and alternatives. The scope of the project is limited to decisions concerning activities within the project area that meet the Purpose and Need, as well as desired conditions. The DEIS will provide the Responsible Official with the information needed to decide which actions, if any, to approve. This EIS will tier to the Flathead National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan and EIS of January 1986, and its subsequent amendments, which provide overall guidance for land management activities on the Flathead National Forest. Scoping Process This notice of intent initiates the scoping process, which guides the development of the environmental impact statement. Public participation will be solicited by notifying in person E:\FR\FM\26OCN1.SGM 26OCN1
