The proposed Tucker, Harvey Jones and Red Lake Well projects are located south of Clear Lake Reservoir.

The purpose of the projects is to provide permanent sources of water for livestock, wildlife and wild horses, facilitate improved livestock distribution and provide additional water sources necessary for fire suppression activities.

Written comments should be mailed to Mike Brod, Acting District Ranger Doublehead Ranger District, ATTN: Range Department, 49870 Hwy 139 Tulelake, CA 96134 Fax: 530-667-8609.

The initial scoping letter for these projects was issued on January 20, 2012. After a review of public comments, a draft decision memo was prepared and sent out for further public comment in March, 2013. As a result of comments received, a decision has been made to prepare an environmental assessment to analyze the impacts of these projects.

If you submitted comments on these projects during the January, 2012 public scoping period and/or the March 2013 public comment period for the draft decision memo, your comments are already on file and no further action is necessary.
