Due to the Chips Fire, the Belden Hazardous Fuels Reduction and Vegetation Management Project EIS has been cancelled.
Instead, the project has been divided in two, according toLee Anne Schramel Taylor, Plumas National Forest public affairs officer.
One part, the Chips Fire Salvage, will be the next project to be opened for public scoping.
The other will address the greener and less severely burned portions of the fire area.
Already in public scoping is a separate project, the Chips Roadside Hazard, which addresses the immediate concern of safety to people who work and recreate via forest roadways.
Proposed for treatment are six miles, or 250 acres along four forest roads the public uses to access Seneca, Caribou, Butt Valley Reservoir and other Pacific Gas and Electric Co. facilities.
The main roads also connect the forest with Highway 70.
Roads by the number are 27N26, 27N26D, 27N98, 26N22 and Seneca Road, which is County Road 306.
Work may begin as early as this winter, weather permitting.
