You are invited to attend a workshop to explain the new SSBT stream rules and changes to leave tree buffer prescriptions. AOL apologizes for the short notice—but ODF just informed us of the training late yesterday. 3 OPL-FP credit for the 3 hour sessions; 8 OPL-FP for the all-day sessions. ODF staff says that additional training may be scheduled later.

 

Western Oregon New Stream Rule Workshop

The attached training announcement (Stream Rules Training)—offered by Oregon Dept. of Forestry—concerns the soon-to-change Forest Practices Rule (FPR) that makes small increase to only some stream buffers.  New FPR affects ONLY a limited set of stream buffers in Western Oregon.  The Riparian Management Area (RMA) Rule change is effective for new Forest Practices Notifications filed beginning July 1, 2017.  All existing operations use current RMA Rules.

 

Applicable streams for the new RMA Rule include ONLY the following:

1.     Western Oregon FPR georegions, excluding the “Siskiyou Region” (i.e. Rogue River basin not included)

2.     Salmon, Steelhead or Bull Trout streams (SSBT) – A brand new ODF stream designation

3.     Small and medium size newly-designated SSBT streams
