DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The proposed action will locally reduce the population of grackles, cowbirds, starlings and redwinged blackbirds. Based upon U. S. Department of the Interior analysis of blackbird populations, this local population reduction will not adversely affect the national population. The effect of the chemical application on surface and ground water, fish, nontarget birds and wildlife, plants and humans has been considered. Under present and anticipated conditions, no adverse impact is expected. It is expected that the action will reduce agricultural damage, feed grain losses and the potential health hazard caused by histoplasmosis. This action will also allow the Army to better discharge its responsibility toward communities in the vicinity of the project areas.
