Proposed regulations to guide sheep grazing in the Weminuche Wilderness are so weighty and controversial that the level of environmental examination of the issues is being ramped up a notch.
The original Environmental Assessment (EA) of the plan for which an unusual second public comment period was opened has been suspended to allow preparation of a more comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
Kara Chadwick, recently named supervisor of the San Juan National Forest to replace Mark Stiles, broke the news Thursday in a talk to Club 20. She confirmed it later to The Durango Herald.
Chadwick cited heightened public interest and the complexity of the analysis as the reasons for increasing the intensity of the environmental test.
Public concern about sheep grazing in the Weminuche Wilderness, which has been going on for 100 years, has drawn intense scrutiny since scoping began in February 2012.
Ignacio-based J. Paul Brown and earlier his father have run sheep annually in the Weminuche since 1971.
