Legal Notice of Decision

West Mountain Irrigation Ditch and Pipe

	On November 5, 2012, Allen Rowley, Acting Forest Supervisor, signed a
Decision Memo for the West Mountain Irrigation Ditch and Pipe project.
 The decision authorizes the company to occupy 0.33 acres of National
Forest System (NFS) lands for the purpose of authorizing an existing
ditch and constructing an above ground pipeline adjacent to a private
inholding approximately 12 miles northwest of Blanding, Utah.  A
special use permit will be issued authorizing a 5 ft. construction
area along the length of the pipeline for a distance of approximately
700 ft. and a 10 ft. right-of-way along the length of the existing
ditch for a distance of approximately 1100 ft.  The Decision Memo is
available online at

	The Forest conducted a 30 day comment period by sending out letters
to approximately 90 interested parties on our public mailing list.  In
addition, a request for comments was published in the Sun Advocate
(newspaper of record) and the San Juan Record.  The project was
available for public review on our website and through the Forest's
Schedule of Proposed Actions.  One comment from The Navajo Nation was
received indicating the project will not impact Navajo traditional
cultural resources and that they have no concerns at this time.  The
USDI Fish and Wildlife Service provided a Biological Opinion on
federally listed species.  This decision is not subject to appeal
pursuant to 36 CFR 215.12.  Implementation may begin immediately.

	The U.S. Department of Agriculture is an equal opportunity provider
and employer.
