Environmental Assessment : Emergency use of prescriptive grazing at the Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge

Metadata Updated: January 29, 2020

This Environmental Assessment (EA) documents the purpose of and the issues, alternatives, and analysis associated with allowance of emergency use of prescriptive grazing through special use permits at the Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge as a means to temporarily relocate livestock whose forage has been impacted by recent wildfires. This EA provides background information and describes the conditions that led the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) to consider authorizing temporary use of national wildlife refuge lands for this purpose and will also describe two alternatives and the analysis of any environmental effects expected to occur from implementing each of the alternatives. Alternatives were developed according the National Environmental Policy Act § 102(2)(E) to consider any effects of an emergency grazing program at the Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge and any effects to the larger human and natural environment. This EA contains the Finding of No Significant Impact, Environmental Compliance Certificate, and Environmental Action Statement.
