Devils Hole Long Term Ecosystem Monitoring Plan EA

The National Park Service, Death Valley National Park proposes to implement a Long-Term Ecosystem Monitoring Plan (LTEMP) for Devils Hole, NV. It is believed that a more holistic commitment to scientific understanding is necessary to effectively steward the Devils Hole ecosystem and the resident endangered Devils Hole pupfish. Long-term monitoring would provide a more accurate and current understanding of complex ecological patterns and processes occurring in Devils Hole.

The Environmental Assessment evaluates two alternatives: No Action, continuation of the current monitoring program, and the Proposed Action, implementation of the LTEMP. The proposed LTEMP would establish long-term monitoring goals, increase the number of parameters that are monitored and contain several models to convey the current understanding of the Devils Hole ecosystem.
