Chairman Bishop Letter to Chief of the U.S. Forest Service Tom Tidwell Concerning the Proposed Directive on Groundwater Resource Management


WASHINGTON, D.C., March 12, 2015 - TO: Mr. Tom Tidwell

FROM: Rob Bishop, Chairman

Dear Chief Tidwell

As you know, bipartisan concern exists over the U.S. Forest Service's (Forest Service) Proposed Directive on Groundwater Resource Management (Groundwater Directive). To date, there are many unanswered questions and growing issues on this far-reaching proposal that would impact 155 National Forests and adjacent lands and waters across the country. While we understand that you have put the Groundwater Directive on a temporary "hold"' , we urge you to withdraw it permanently to allow states to continue their longstanding groundwater management.
