Environmental Assessment (March 2010)
FONSI

This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to support an application from the Cachil DeHe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community (CIC or Tribe) for land to be placed into federal trust (Proposed Action).  The BIA is the federal agency that is charged with reviewing and approving tribal applications to take land into federal trust status. This land, known as the “CIC Property,” consists of approximately 225 acres in Colusa County, California, and is intended to be used for continued agricultural production of walnuts and construction of up to 20 houses for Tribal members. The BIA will use this EA to determine if the Proposed Action would result in adverse effects to the environment.
