21-048 Corps of Engineers seeks public input on proposed Benton Creek Wildfire Timber Salvage Sale

WALLA WALLA DISTRICT CORPS OF ENGINEERS
Published Aug. 26, 2021

Walla Walla, Wash. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District is inviting public comments on the proposed Benton Creek Wildfire Timber Salvage Sale and accompanying Environmental Assessment, in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

Started by lightning on July 7, the Benton Creek wildfire burned nearly 4,200 acres of forest approximately 30 miles northeast of Orofino, Idaho. To promote the growth of elk winter forage and improve forest health following the wildfire, the Corps proposes to conduct a salvage timber sale of up to 370 acres on Corps managed land affected by the Benton Creek wildfire. The removal of fire-damaged trees would improve conditions for the growth of winter elk forage, minimize the potential for future disease and insect infestations, bring valuable commodities to market, and improve aesthetics in and around the Benton Creek area.

The comment period will be open from August 27 to September 10. Comments may be filed online at: http://www.nww.usace.army.mil/EnvironmentalComplianceComment/ or via email to NEPANWW@usace.army.mil, inserting “Benton Creek Timber Salvage” in the subject line. Comments may also be mailed to:
