DECISION NOTICE AND
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT (FONSI)

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CS&KT) have completed the attached Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Dog Lake Management Area (hereafter DLMA) for timber harvesting and fuel treatments and associated activities. The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), in cooperation with the CS&KT Tribal Forestry Program, has reviewed the proposed timber harvest in the DLMA. The DLMA is located approximately 7 miles southwest of Hot Springs, Montana on the Flathead Indian Reservation. The approximate legal description is Township 21 North, Range 25 West, sections 13, 14, 23–26, and 35, Sanders County, Montana.
The EA for the proposed timber harvest has been completed in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (40 CFR Parts 1500–1508) and is available for review at the following locations; the Tribal Forestry Department in Ronan, the Tribal Complex in Pablo, the D’arcy McNickle Library on the campus of Salish Kootenai College, and the Ronan and Polson City Libraries.
The BIA Flathead Agency has determined that Alternative B would not have significant impacts on the human environment. Therefore, there is no need to prepare an environmental impact statement. The no-action alternative was not selected because it did not meet project objectives.
Individuals and entities that may be significantly affected or interested in the proposed action may provide comments about this FONSI and the accompanying EA to this office until August 22, 2016. This opportunity to comment is not a right to appeal this FONSI or EA. Any challenge to the adequacy of this FONSI or EA must be made, if at all, in an appeal of the decision which relies upon this FONSI and EA.
The planning file for the EA, including scoping documents and background materials, can be reviewed at the CS&KT Forestry Building at 104 Main St. SE, Ronan, Montana. For further information, contact Jim Durglo at (406) 676-3755.
