Comments submitted using methods outside of the electronic link do not need to be re-submitted.  

The Eagle Lake Ranger District (ELRD), of the Lassen National Forest (LNF) is proposing construction of a new low water boat ramp to provide improved boating access to Eagle Lake. This project would construct a road base-surfaced access road and boat launch ramp just west of the existing Gallatin Low Water Boat Ramp (GLWR). The Pikes Point Low Water Boat Ramp Project area is located 12 miles northwest of Susanville, CA along the southern shoreline of Eagle Lake. This project consists of approximately 0.56 acres, within Lassen County, California, in the following legal location: T. 31 N., R. 11 E., Section 7, Mount Diablo Meridian.
