HOMEPAGE

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) requires the BLM to consider significant environmental impacts prior to approval of actions on public lands.  When an activity or action is proposed within the Gunnison Field Office, BLM staff conduct an interdisciplinary review of the potential environmental impacts in order to make more informed decisions and identify measures to protect, restore, and enhance the environment.


 NO PRIVACY GUARANTEE FOR NEPA COMMENTS

Before submitting written comments regarding a NEPA action, be advised that your entire comment—including personally identifiable information (such as your address, phone number, and e-mail address)—may be made publicly available at any time.  While you can request that your personally identifiable information be withheld from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.


 This register is updated on or near the first of each month and as needed.

  For more information on these projects, contact GFO NEPA Coordinator Marnie Medina

All Field Office NEPA registers contain current EIS and EA actions.  However, certain registers do not include CXs and DNAs.  Inquiries about these documents can be obtained by contacting the NEPA Coordinator, or by visiting the GFO public room.

 

CX = Categorical Exclusion

DNA = Documentation of NEPA Adequacy and Land Use Plan Conformance

EA = Environmental Assessment

EIS = Environmental Impact Statement

National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106 Compliance
Most projects also require compliance with Section 106 of the NHPA. This register serves as scoping for both NEPA and NHPA involvement.

*The listing of WSA (Wilderness Study Area), ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern), WSR (Wild and Scenic River ), or WA (Wilderness Area) in this column indicates that the proposed action is within that special designation area.
