Description of the Proposed Action. The proposed action is to establish a target array pond on the South Range. The approximate location of the proposed array is N 40 21.641 Wll3 12.184. The construction will also require installing a 600 dirtgravel road from a dirtgravel source to the proposed target. The proposed target array pond will consist of a 250x 250 pond, up to 15 feet deep. The pond will be constructed by building four interconnected dirt walls. The material to build the walls will be dirtgravel transported by truck from the nearest approved gravel pit. Once the four sides of the proposed pond have been put in place the interior area will be lined with a rubber pad to containerize the water and any debris. The pond will then be filled with water acquired by pumping from shallow depressions located throughout the range that fill with water from the shallow brine aquifer located beneath the west desert.
