BLM-NV-WN-ES-08-01-1310, NV-020-08-01#NEPAImpact_with_Floodplains +The proposed project is not located in any FEMA-designated floodplains.  +
BLM-NV-WN-ES-08-01-1310, NV-020-08-01#NEPAImpact_with_Fisheries_Resources +The proposed project is not located in or near any fisheries.  +
BLM-NV-WN-ES-08-01-1310, NV-020-08-01#NEPAImpact_with_Wild_and_Scenic_Rivers +The proposed project is not located in or near any wild and scenic rivers (BLM WFO 2002).  +
BLM-NV-WN-ES-08-01-1310, NV-020-08-01#NEPAImpact_with_Prime_or_Unique_Farmlands +The proposed project is not located in or near any prime or unique farmlands (BLM WFO 2002).  +
BLM-NV-WN-ES-08-01-1310, NV-020-08-01#NEPAImpact_with_Wilderness +The proposed project is not in or adjacent to any wilderness area (BLM WFO 2002).  +

BLM-NV-WN-ES-08-01-1310, NV-020-08-01#NEPAImpact_with_Social_Values +No social values would be affected by the project.  +
Boardman to Hemingway#NEPAImpact_with_Noise +"Buzzing" disturbances may interfere with "wildness" feeling. The noise generated from this project will not exceed allowable decibels.  +
Boardman to Hemingway#NEPAImpact_with_Native_American_Concerns +Native American Reservations are not crossed, however, there are 45 tribes within 2 miles of the proposed project's pathway. Burial sites, cultural practices, and artifacts commonly occur off of the indian reservation.  +
Boardman to Hemingway#NEPAImpact_with_Threatened_and_Endangered_Species +The Sage Grouse habitat will be heavily disturbed.  +

DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Cultural_Resources +Although the Sinter Quarry occupies roughly two-thirds of the project area, the distinct loci being recommended for eligibility on the NRHP consist of debris that is scattered widely throughout the individual sites.  +
DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Soils +Approximately 3.4 ha (8.4 acres) would be cleared and graded during site preparation.  +
DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Vegetation +Permanent impacts to vegetation in the study area would consist mainly of loss of upland open forest and, to a lesser extent, sagebrush from construction of the proposed action.  +
DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Economic_Values +The estimated peak work force during construction is estimated to be 75 to 100 workers. Preference would be given to local companies. Therefore, the project is not expected to generate a major influx of new employees.  +
DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Geology_and_Minerals +Approximately 3.4 ha (8.4 acres) would be cleared and graded during site preparation. These impacts are not expected to effect the on-site geology (i.e., change geologic substructures).  +
DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Special_Status_Species +Potential impacts to Steamboat buckwheat and Altered andesite buckwheat due to construction of activities associated with this project are described in a biological assessment.  +
DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Wildlife_Resources +Because wildlife occurring in the existing habitats are relatively low in abundance and diversity, construction activities would be expected to result in removing or displacing low numbers of common and characteristic animals and habitat features.  +
DOE-EA-1116#NEPAImpact_with_Water_Quantity +Short-term exposure of the disturbance area may effect surface runoff. Since construction would only last a short term (approximately 14 months), significant impacts to absorption rates, drainage patterns, surface runoff, or water quality is not expected.  +
