BLM IN DISCUSSION TO ACQUIRE FALLS
Posted on Jul 2nd, 2020 Comments (0)
 
The link below provides access to relevant project information on the BLM effort to purchase Fort Stanton Falls adjacent to Unit III. The Environmental Assessment for this project is open for review until July 25, 2020. If completed, this will result in the Fort Stanton Snowy River National Conservation Area boundary encroaching on Ranches of Sonterra roads. 
 
While the BLM acquiring the Falls will open it up for public access, it could result in an undesirable situation in ROS U-III. If you would like to review and comment, please include a concern that access be prohibited from the west side of the property and adequate fencing be erected to protect property values and residents of Sonterra.

2019 Upper Hondo SWCD Noxious Weed Cost-share Program
Posted on Apr 16th, 2019 Comments (0)
The Upper Hondo Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is once again offering a noxious weed control cost-share program.  The program reimburses individual ROS property owners up to 50% of the total project cost, up to $500.  Property owners have two options for treatment:
  • The property owner purchases non-restricted herbicide and applies independently.  Note that before and after pictures are required.  Herbicide can be purchased at the Upper Hondo SWCD office in Capitan.  The individual property owner files the cost-share application with Upper Hondo SWCD, along with the before and after pictures.
  • The landowner hires a licensed, commercial application company and attains an estimate for the project.  Once the company treats the noxious weeds, the cost estimate is used for reimbursement and needs to accompany the cost-share application.  A representative from Upper Hondo SWCD will visit the property to ensure the work was done.
The ROS uses Alto Weed Control to treat noxious weeds on our county right-of-ways.  The contact information is:
