||Avoid planting monocultures
||"Avoid planting monocultures."
||Completely cover contaminated ponds and disposal pits to prevent wildlife exposure.
||"Ensure that ponds containing mining wastes are closed off to exclude birds, bats, and other wildlife attracted to the water...employ a technique, ...
||Construct noise barriers or add noise dampening
||"Noise barriers can be constructed at drilling and testing operations, and noise dampening around engines should be considered (including foam ...
||Decrease continuous noise levels enclosing engines or installing additional suppression on mufflers.
||"If necessary, implement mitigation measures to decrease continuous noise levels. For example, enclose compressor engines with buildings and install ...
||Enhance habitat for birds and other wildlife by placing suitable rocks on reclaimed mined land.
||"Enhance habitat for birds and other wildlife by placing suitable rocks on reclaimed mined land. Rock should be placed in piles of varying sizes up ...
||Expand buffer areas when raptor prey is scarce.
||"To minimize the effects of continuous noise on bird populations . . . buffer zone should be expanded in areas where prey are scarce, as raptors must ...

||Implement appropriate buffers and timing to reduce impact on raptor nest sites.
||"Reduce the impact of construction and operations on raptor nest sites with buffers and timing restrictions. Contact state or federal wildlife ...
||Locate constant noise generators far from sensitive habitats to ensure no more than 49 dBA reaches individuals.
||"Constant noise generators should be located far enough away from sensitive habitats such as grouse leks and raptor nests that the noise that reaches ...
||Match existing topography to provide micro sites.
||"Provide topography similar to the surrounding area to provide micro sites that promote a mosaic pattern."
||Plant shrub species in and around rock piles
||"Shrub species should be planted in and around piles to encourage establishment of unique plant communities."
||Prior to surface disturbances, reclamation plans must be approved by Authorized Officer.
||"Performance Objectives: 3. Prior to surface disturbance on slopes of, or greater than, 40 percent, an engineering/reclamation plan must be approved ...
||Reclaim areas as soon as possible following disturbance.
||"Reclaim areas as soon as possible after activities are completed."
||Reduce noise levels to 49 dBA.
||"To minimize the effects of continuous noise on bird populations, reduce noise levels to 49 dBA or less, particularly during the bird nesting season."
||Reseed with local genetic seed stock, avoiding nonnative plant species.
||"Reseed with local genetic seed stock, if available, and avoid using nonnative plant species that compete with native species."
||Utilize fencing when necessary until vegetation is well established.
||"Fencing may be necessary to protect a site from both livestock and wild grazers, such as jackrabbits, until vegetation is well established. However, ...
