Proper Functioning Condition
Proper functioning condition (PFC) was assessed for the Rio Ojo Caliente (3 miles) a tributary of the Rio Chama and the Red River (5) a tributary of the Rio Grande.
BLM Plans and Objectives Addressed:
- Taos Resource Management Plan (2012)
- Riparian Vegetation Goal to: Provide for proper functioning condition (PFC) of vegetative communities by managing for viable and resilient native wildlife species and other associated habitats.
- Riparian Vegetation Goal to: Move toward and/or remain in PFC such that riparian communities will be sustainable, provide physical stability and adequate habitat for a wide range of wildlife species, and support healthy, diverse, and abundant populations of fish and associated aquatic and riparian dependent species.
- Taos Resource Management Plan (2012), Riparian Vegetation Objective to: Monitor riparian areas and conduct rangeland health assessments to document progress toward achieving and maintaining PFC.
