USFS Proposing Directives on Ground Water, Water Quality Best Management Practices

Washington, DC...The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) has proposed directives on groundwater protection and water quality best management practices on national forest lands that will update the way national forests manage their lands. This week, two separate proposals were released that establish new practices and procedures for monitoring, analyzing, and protecting water on forests and grasslands managed by the USFS. While neither proposal directly establishes mandates on rural communities, both will affect how future travel management plans and forest plan amendments are approached, and how people are allowed to use the forests. A greater focus on water quality and groundwater management has already been adopted in the updated National Forest Land Management Planning Rule (adopted in 2012), and this is one more step to tightening standards on USFS lands with respect to water management....




The USFS is currently taking comments on both proposals. Comments on the Best Management Practices (BMP) proposal are due by July 7, 2014, while comments on the groundwater directives must be filed by August 4, 2014. There is also a planned webinar on both proposals tentatively set for May 20, 2014, although it has not yet been officially noticed. Information on both proposals, as well as links to the Federal Register notices, can be accessed here.

to fracking.

Fracking is ruining aquifers across America, with Ca slated next. The sad part is Ca feeds the country and world,who cares?

The Kochs, oil cos, and the Republicans want to destroy what is left of the earth.

$$$$$$$$$ is all that matters.

Enjoy your cancer...death.

      Agree on the NO FRACKING. It is very bad for our over all environment and the USGS has found that it does set off Earthquakes.

        What I see and I may be wrong are two concerns. One the environmental in real concerns from some on damage and the other is our competitiveness as a nation. Our energy sector has been what can be said is creating some of the only "living wage" private sector jobs right now.

        The other is just because we stop tracking here does that mean our competitor nations will stop? We know they won't.

        Let's look at the last thirty years. We have cleaner air and water which is a good thing but most of our manufacturing jobs are now in China. The middle class jobs that were here along with the pollution are now there.

        The good book said where there is no ox the stable is clean but much can be accomplished from the strength of the ox.

        We have to choose to we want jobs, goods and a thriving manufacturing sector or do we want to be just a big national park and starve to death?

      "Pinko" is sort of a strange last name.

      George Soros has gotten very rich from peddling leftwing propaganda. He hasn’t even produced a fraction of the income producing jobs or the level of charitable contributions that the Koch brothers have. His claim to fame is clouding minds and installing subpar destructive politicians.

    This isn't about killing the planet!!!!! Who in their right mind would want that?? What the greens have done is kill our economy and make it too expensive to build or do anything in the US.

    Continuing how you think you have a right to do is killing the planet.

    There are alternatives, but the Kochs, ALEC, the carbon fuel corps, don't want anything to do with a clean sustainable world.

    They want to continue to burn coal, oil, gas.

    The Kochs and their legislative ALEC recently had a bill signed in Ok. to have people pay a fee to put solar power on the grid.
    In Mo. an ALEC bill would charge $139 each year for a solar PV lease agreement.

    Solar generation costs the utilities nothing, but they are fighting clean renewable energy.

    This is the Conservative mindset. Continue burning carbon fuels and killing the planet.

    In all studies clean renewable energy creates many jobs, more than the carbon fuel industry.

      Amen to that.
      And may the eyes of those blinded by the Koch's rhetoric be opened.

      The world doesn't end at our borders. Who has benefited from us dismantling our economy the last 30 years? China and now the USSR since they no longer have anyone to fear.

      Green is a good idea but completely naive
