Project Description:
The proposed new Duck Creek fence section does not necessarily follow the previously delineated HMA boundary it is located as close as possible to the boundary where the fence will be effective and result in the least impacts to the other resources (i.e. listed plant species and cultural resources). The proposed fence will be a 4 strand barbed wire fence. The proposed reconstruction of the Corcoran Spring will be to place the new water feature out of the drainage, it will also include a design feature such that the wild horses and wildlife will make use of the new water source where the water has been placed into a “container” of some kind at or near ground level to avoid placing the water into a tank which the wild horse and other wildlife have shown they will not use.
