    Additional Notes
    Property was previously a privately owned working ranch, which became a State Park in the lates 1960s. The irrigation reservoir on the property is not native habitat for the Pahrump poolfish. This endangered species was transplanted to the Spring Mountain Ranch State Park in June 1983. The HCP was established to provide a secure habitat for the species, while allowing for the maintainence of the irrigation reservoir by the State Park for its original purposes, specifically dredging accumulated sediment to restore the reservoir's water storage capacity.
