Title: Wells Basin allotment 1070 evaluation and grazing permit modification environmental assessment
Author: United States. Bureau of Land Management. Vale District
Abstract: The Bureau of Land Management, Vale District, Baker Resource Area, proposes to implement management adjustments that would modify the existing 10-year grazing permits for the Wells Basin Allotment (#1070) including: 1. A decrease in active grazing preference within the allotment, going from 370 active AUMs to 272 active AUMs. One permit would go from 171 AUMs to 126 AUMs, and the other permit would go from 199 AUMs to 146 AUMs. 2. Adding to the terms and conditions of the permit the following language: "Utilization monitoring standards allow livestock to graze up to 50% on upland grasses, 45% on riparian sedges/grasses, and 30% on aspen. Active grazing use under this permit which contributes to exceeding the above utilization standards (at designated key areas) will result in a temporary reduction of 20% fewer AUMs of active use the following year. Two consecutive years of exceeding utilization standards will result in a year of rest (nonuse of this permit) the third year."
