How do you document and who do you notify?
19
How do you document and who do you notify?
  • After discussion with Danette Woo, Compliance
    Specialist at Mojave National Preserve, consult
    with Dr. Creed Clayton, Endangered Species
    Biologist at the US Fish and Wildlife Service
    Ventura Ecological Services Office, regarding
    potential impacts to listed species and
    restoration needs, if any. Pursue Burned Area
    Emergency Response funding or other funding
    sources to implement any restoration
    recommendations.
  • Discuss with Dr. Matt Brooks, Fire Ecologist at
    US Geological Survey Las Vegas Field Office,
    his interest in pursuing any fire effects or fire
    ecology research related to fire response of this
    desert riparian community.
  • Discuss with Dr. Bob Bryson, Archaeologist at
    Mojave National Preserve, his interest in
    conducting post-fire site assessment to determine
    if any cultural sites were damaged by the fire or
    suppression effort and to survey for new sites.
  • Notify Annie Kearns, Hydrologist at Mojave
    National Preserve, in the event she wants to
    document post-fire floodplain response and to get
    Piute Creek prioritized for annual tamarisk
    treatment for the next several years.
  • Notify Kim Allison, Range Specialist at Bureau of
    Land Management Needles Field Office, that range
    improvements (water pipeline) were destroyed in
    the fire. It is unclear if the pipeline was still
    being used to convey water to the adjacent BLM
    grazing allotment.
  • Gordon Pine, Lands Officer at Mojave National
    Preserve, regarding status of California Game and
    Fish parcel and contact information.
  • PUT EVERYTHING IN THE RESOURCE ADVISOR REPORT!

20
Post-fire Concerns?
21
Post-fire Concerns?
  • Unclear if listed riparian birds use the area
  • Tamarisk increase in riparian corridor
  • Burned pipeline no longer used
  • Potential suppression or fire impacts to known
    and unknown cultural sites
  • Exposure of petroglyphs
  • Potential for post-fire looting of exposed sites
  • Concern for public safety in channel due to flash
    flood, burned stump holes, etc.

22
How do you address those concerns?
23
How do you address those concerns?
  • Do fire suppression rehab
  • Map all suppression efforts
  • Rehab fire line
  • Rake tracks
  • Consult Agency Administrator and Regional BAER
    Coordinator then Initiate Emergency Stabilization
    Process
  • Use ad hoc team to do assessments
  • Develop treatments
  • Do SHPO and FWS consultations
  • Submit ES Plan on September 12

BAER Plan
25
BAER Plan Approved
  • This plan has been approved by Pacific West
    Region with modification. The modification is the
    deletion of Specification 5 ((Evaluate TES
    Habitat recovery) and Specification 6
    (Endangered Species Survey) because they were
    determined to be outside of the Emergency
    Stabilization and Rehabilitation funding
    criteria. Subsequently, the cost of Specification
    8 (Implementation Leader) was reduced by half.
    The total amount approved and funded is 58,933.
  • Specification 1 Restrict Public Access
  • Specification 2 Law Enforcement
  • Specification 3 Install Sensors
  • Specification 4 Salt cedar control
  • Specification 7 Pipeline removal
  • Specification 8 Implementation Leader

26
Implement BAER Plan
  • Amended in September 2005 to remove the public
    use closure
  • Submitted Final Accomplishment Report October 1,
    2005
