The purpose of this project was to mitigate the hazard of landslides or significant erosion occurring from old logging roads listed above. Some of these roads are located on steep cross slopes above Consinka Creek and Consinka Lake. Failure along any section of these roads could produce sediment that could impact the fish habitat in Consinka Lake and Consinka Creek. The road conditions were evaluated and associated hazards at specific locations along each road were identified. From this evaluation a road deactivation prescription was prepared to mitigate the identified hazards. It was not within the project scope to assess the open slope conditions beyond the road right of way. The project is not located within a community watershed.
