Abstract:

Implementation of the Proposed Actions could result in minor short-term negative impacts to air quality, noise, and soils from construction-related activities. Beneficial impacts are expected to occur in the areas of human health and safety, and socioeconomics. No impacts are anticipated to occur to current land uses, water resources, floodplains, vegetation, wetlands, minority and low-income populations, cultural resources, visual resources, transportation, or hazardous wastes from the Proposed Actions. Insignificant impacts would affect wildlife around no-tolerance zones and buffer zones. This impact is due to the decrease of all living wildlife within the burrows during fumigation. However, a positive impact to wildlife is expected from the establishment of the translocated prairie dog colony by providing quality habitat for a variety of species if funding and the law allows.
