Project Description:
The proposed action is to enhance up to four existing watering locations within the Little Owyhee and Snowstorms HMAs with temporary troughs and/or water storage tanks to provide wild horses within the area much needed water. The existing watering locations are naturally occurring springs, reservoirs and rivers. Due to the lack of moisture and wild horse numbers over AML, these sources are providing little to no watering opportunities for wild horses or wildlife. There are currently large numbers of horses that are dependent on these dried or drying up sources of water. Without adequate amounts of water wild horses may die, and as drought continues horses will die. The temporary troughs and/or storage tanks would provide the horses with a more continuous source of water until they are gathered. Due to the wild horse numbers being over AML, water hauling may have to continue through the winter until the water resources have had an ample opportunity to recover.
