NEPA Resource Applicant Mitigation The wellheads, pump motors and motor contr
The wellheads, pump motors and motor control buildings would each be painted forest green or another appropriate color to blend with the area and minimize visibility. The fence constructed around each of the production well sites would also be painted an appropriate color to blend with the area. The aluminum sheath cladding the pipeline would also be appropriately colored to blend with the area.

NEPA Resource Comment The proposed pipeline route would cross ar
The proposed pipeline route would cross areas near U.S. Highway 395 and California State Route 203 that have been designated with a visual quality objective (VQO) of “Retention” by the Inyo National Forest. U.S. Highway 395 is also a California Scenic Highway and State Route 203 is a County Scenic Highway.

NEPA Resource Imposed Mitigation VIS Mitigation Measure 6: The pipeline seg
VIS Mitigation Measure 6: The pipeline segments to be constructed on Inyo National Forest managed-land in areas with the VQO of “retention” and visible from State Route 203 and/or U.S. Highway 395 shall use textured pipeline cladding and shall be colored with a color or colors (approved by the authorized officer) to blend with the area so that the pipeline generally repeats the color and texture of the characteristic landscape. VIS Mitigation Measure 7: Following completion of construction, the Permittee shall prepare, submit for approval by the authorized officer, and implement a landscape plan to plant native trees and shrub vegetation at select locations on Inyo National Forest-managed land to further screen from view those portions of the pipeline which may be visible from State Route 203 and/or U.S. Highway 395 to ensure that the pipeline is at least subordinate to the visual strength of the characteristic landscape. VIS Mitigation Measure 8: Following completion of construction, the Permittee shall prepare, obtain the approval of the Mono County and other required parties, and implement a landscape plan to plant native trees and shrub vegetation at select locations on private land to further screen from view those portions of the pipeline which may be visible from U.S. Highway 395 to ensure that the pipeline is generally obscured from view. VIS Mitigation Measure 9A: The Alternative Pipeline Route pipeline segments to be constructed on private land within the scenic highway corridor along U.S. Highway 395 where visible shall use textured pipeline cladding and shall be colored with a color or colors selected (with the concurrence of Mono County) to ensure that the color and structure material are compatible with the natural setting.
