Last chance to comment on Sproul State Forest plans.

The comment period is ending & more public comments are needed.

Your comments are important because Sproul has problems with both gas drilling and ATV trespass..

Please print out this list, so you can include some of the following “talking points” as you fill out the ten question survey form:

[ ] The District Plans are based on the 2016 Resource Management Plan, which has not been updated to reflect the State Supreme Court decision of 6/20/17. That RMP must be updated first, so the local District Foresters are working from an up-to-date document.

[ ] The Resource Management Plan must include the latest Shale Gas Monitoring Report as part of the management plan (both at District and BOF levels).

[ ] The Resource Management Plan must detail each current impact from gas leases and a specific plan to describe how DCNR is going to manage those impacts now and in the future. This must include communication of those facts to the public.

[ ] The SFRMP must describe the impacts of shale gas development on Pennsylvania’s state forest resources more completely and publish it on the DCNR website.

[ ] The management plan must eliminate the second part of “managed for sustainable timber and natural gas”. You are not supposed to be managing our forests for natural gas; you are supposed to be mitigating the damage caused by natural gas development.

[ ] DCNR must provide an analysis of the current health of the ecosystem of every forest district and develop management plans to sustain and improve those ecosystems.

[ ] A new section must be added to the State and each District Forest Resource Management Plan (FRMP), detailing DCNR’s obligations under Article 1, Section 27 and how the agency plans to meet those obligations.

[ ] There must be a tabulation of the number of gas wells, pipelines, and compressor stations in each State Forest and an accurate area of the acreage of State Forest land converted to non-forest land by all gas related activities. Listing “acres lost” is insufficient in describing the new forest edge created, fragmentation and loss of core forest areas.

[ ] Central Office must provide new sections in the SFRMP on public contact and law enforcement. The mandated ATV corridors to the NY State Line will create many new problems.

[ ] There should be improved standards for plugging wells and removal of pipelines beyond the requirements of DEP.

[ ] There must be a statement which clearly expresses that the Bureau of Forestry will follow Article1 Section of our Constitution; the Trust be managed for the people so that the Commonwealth cannot degrade, diminish, or deplete our public natural resources. This should be in each forest district plan. It must be the culture of the Bureau of Forestry.

[ ] Any expansion of ATV routes must be accompanied with increased enforcement, paid for from the Snowmobile / ATV Restricted Fund. DCNR must block all illegal ATV trails prior to building any new ATV trails or corridors.

[ ] Central Office must provide definitive standards for ecosystem management so that districts are working from a clear, unambiguous system.

After everyone was satisfied with the training, everyone returned to the 46 House to gather some additional paperwork, manuals, and excess equipment that Oak Grove could put to better use protecting their first due. 

Both engines left this morning for their 12+ hour ride home to Tennessee. The 46 House would like to thank Chief 46-10 (M. Ingalls) and Board of Directors member Jerry Johnson for taking the time to pick up the guys from the Bradford Airport, Mrs. Shirley Johnson and Port Notary Service for fitting us in during their day to help us complete the necessary paperwork, and the Oak Grove Fire Department for purchasing the trucks. We wish you luck and hope that both trucks will continue to service you and your communities as good as they have served us here in Potter County.

Respectfully,
Justin W. Fillhart
