Carlsbad Project Vegetation Management Program

The United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation has prepared a five-year draft programmatic environmental assessment/biological assessment for the purpose of performing research and demonstration using integrated methods (herbicides, biological and mechanical) on saltcedar to determine effective methods of control and rehabilitation while monitoring ). Saltcedar is considered a noxious species whose impacts to water resources in New Mexico are detrimental. It transpires large amounts of water in comparison to native vegetation. The proposed work would involve lands within the Carlsbad Project area which include Brantley and Avalon Reservoirs.Proposed work would be located on Reclamation lands within the Carlsbad Project area, called the Research Project area
