Show 3 Riparian/Wetland Condition Assessment Qualitative observations of hydrology, vegetation, and erosion/deposition (soils) attributes (see pg. 63 of protocol). 17 physical attributes are assessed on the Lotic form and 20 on the Lentic form. They are answered in a Yes/No/Not Applicable format. Notes addressing each attribute can be included on the form. At the end of the form a summary rating for the stream or wetland is given as Proper Functioning, Functioning at-Risk, or Non Functioning. If Functioning at-Risk, an apparent trend assessed as Upward, Downward or not Apparent. The individual technical references can be used to identify all of the attributes. Note: For PFC assessments there are two technical references. One is for Lotic (moving water) riparian areas and the other is for Lentic (standing water or wetland) riparian areas. Bureau of Land Management, Partners This methodology is performed by an interdisciplinary team. Generally, the riparian coordinator for each office oversees the efforts: - RSFO: John Henderson, Fisheries Biologist, Rock Springs Field Office, 280 Hwy 191 N, Rock Springs WY 82901, (307) 352-0220, jhenders@blm.gov - PFO: Kellie Roadifer, Planning and Environmental Coordinator, Pinedale Field Office, 1625 West Pine Street, PO Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941, (307) 367-5309, kroadife@blm.gov - KFO: Carl Bezanson, Rangeland Management Specialist, Kemmerer Field Office, 312 Highway 189 North, Kemmerer WY 83101, (307) 828-4522, cbezanso@blm.gov Primary Contact or Forest Service, BLM, NRCS.
