The FIA funded prescription and works are to help assure stability and minimize erosion events by re working the deactivated road system. The 12 Mile Creek is not in a community watershed. However, there are downstream fisheries values. The streams in the area of the prescription are not fish bearing. The objectives of the deactivation are to restore pre existing surface and subsurface drainage patterns as close to possible as they were in their original condition. The prescription was for 8 old roads and trails that are non status and which have potential instability issues that were noted during a walk through assessment of an adjacent area.
