Abstract: The purpose of the proposed project is to control the spread of saltcedar and Russian olive within the Fort Peck Reservoir by utilizing a variety of methods. The need for the proposed project stems from the requirement to meet the National Invasive Species Act of 1996 as well as to comply with the Corps’ agency policy on control of noxious weeds. An additional need is to protect area recreation, fish and wildlife and the habitat upon which the species of the Fort Peck Reservoir and adjacent areas depend on. Assessing herbicides, such as triclopyr and 2,4-D, in addition to the previously approved herbicides in the 2013 EA for aerial application will allow the Corps to more effectively and efficiently control infestations. Having multiple approved herbicides to utilize on a rotating basis may potentially help prevent a phenomenon known as herbicide resistance.
