Public Scoping Report

The National Park Service (NPS) recently conducted public scoping on a proposal to use a different piscicide to remove fish from select mountain lakes in accordance with the 2008 Mountain Lakes Fishery Management Plan/Final Environmental Impact Statement (Plan/FEIS). This Public Scoping Report describes the comments received and provides a response for each substantive comment. The results of public scoping support proceeding as proposed without further analysis in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) because the environmental effects of this change would be substantially similar to those described and previously disclosed in the 2008 Plan/FEIS, including impacts to wilderness character. The scoping results also emphasize the need for continued public education and outreach efforts to foster public understanding of the complex scientific and technical aspects of lake restoration in the Stephen Mather Wilderness of North Cascades National Park Service Complex.
