Dark Canyon Creek Exclosure and Upland Water Source

  • GRMW ID: 1932
  • Fiscal Year: 2016

The Dark Canyon Creek Exclosure and Upland Water Source Project will consist of two miles of exclosure fence construction and the development of three spring sources. All disturbed areas will be seeded after project completion. Fencing: A new livestock exclosure fence will be constructed on Dark Canyon Creek. This will involve constructing a 4 strand barb wire fence for two miles that would adjoin existing fence to exclude 2 miles of stream from livestock. Spring Developments: Standard water developments will be constructed at three spring sources. The project would involve the installation of a spring box, trough, and 1/16 mile of 4 strand barb wire exclosure fence around the spring.
