Forest Officials Seeking Public Comment on LMUD Permit Reissuance

The Eagle Lake Ranger District of the Lassen National Forest is initiating the Lassen Municipal Utility District Master Permit Reissuance Project and is scoping for public input.

The purpose of this proposed action is to issue a new Master Special Use Permit for the continued operation and maintenance of existing LMUD electric system facilities and infrastructure located in the Lassen National Forest.

Some of the existing Special Use Authorizations for these powerlines have expired. A new authorization will make needed updates to various terms and conditions that meet current land and resource management standards, facilitate more efficient electric system operations and maintenance activities with a standardized Operation and Maintenance Plan and reduce administrative burden by consolidating numerous Special Use Authorizations into a single Master Permit for continued use and occupancy of NFS lands.

The public is encouraged to submit input as it relates to the proposed action and identify any issues about the anticipated effects from this proposed action. The Forest Service is requesting that you respond in writing before May 11th, 2018 so your comments may be considered as we move through the NEPA process with this project.

Written comments may be submitted to:
Carol Thornton, District Ranger
Eagle Lake Ranger District
477-050 Eagle Lake Road
Susanville, CA 96130

Electronic comments may be submitted to: [email protected] with Subject: LMUD Master Permit Reissuance Project.

To contact the Eagle Lake District Ranger call (530) 257-4188 during normal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Written comments are also accepted at FAX number: (530) 252-5803.

A decision regarding this proposal is expected in May 2018.
