Forest Service grants Tombstone work permit
The U.S. Forest Service has granted the permit needed for work to begin Friday and continue Saturday on the manual repair of Tombstone’s water lines in Miller Canyon at Miller Spring and Gardner Spring.
The Tombstone Shovel Brigade’s volunteers will be permitted to access certain sites, including the one where the endangered Mexican Spotted Owl is nesting. However, the FS is allowing only five people at a time in that area to prevent any disturbance according to the letter accompanying the permit signed by USFS Forest Supervisor Jim Upchurch.
At Miller Spring, the USFS is allowing the crews to use a cordless hammer drill, oxy/acetylene torch, a gas powered cut off saw and miscellaneous hand tools. USFS will provide a skilled cross-cut saw operator to replace the chain saw that was proposed for use.
The USFS also announced a press conference to be held on the Tombstone waterline repairs at 10:30 a.m. today at the headquarters at 5990 Highway 92 in Hereford.
