Public comment sought on Rendija Canyon

-A A +A

Citizens are invited to comment on a project designed to repair damage to the upper Rendija Canyon, located near the Ponderosa subdivision of Los Alamos.
The county implemented emergency flood control measures following the heavy rains in September 2013, with emergency operations extending into the Santa Fe National Forest.
Subsequently, Los Alamos County and the Española Ranger District developed a proposal for restoration. The proposal would remove excess sediment from the channel, return the channel to an appropriate grade, and plant willows or other vegetation to stabilize the channel.
“As much as possible, we want to restore the channel to the way it was before the flooding and flood control work,” said Sandy Hurlocker, Espanola District Ranger. “Before we make final plans, we want to give people an opportunity to share their comments or concerns.”
Commenting during this period will also establish eligibility to appeal the decision. The project’s notice was published in the Albuquerque Journal Wednesday, which begins a 30-day notice and comment period as required by Forest Service regulations.
