The most common rangeland problem in this subbasin is lack of proper distribution of livestock grazing. The second most common problem is the lack of watering facilities for livestock, which worsens the distribution problem.
Treatments for riparian areas, cropland, rangeland and livestock operations have been put in place. Best Management Practices (BMPs) that have been installed are Watering Facilities, Grade Stabilization, Fencing, Pest Management, Range Planting and more. The following BMPs are needed for rangelands: Prescribed Grazing, Watering Facility, Water Well, Pumping Plant; Spring Development, Pipeline, Range Planting, Prescribed Burning, Brush Management, Fence and Pest Management. For more information see the Central Bear (Bear River Mainstem) TMDL Implementation Plan for Agriculture.
