Royal Gorge NEPA Log October 2, 2014

This register is updated the first week of every month.   

CX = Categorical Exclusion
DN = Documentation of NEPA Adequacy and Land Use Plan Conformance
EA = Environmental Assessment
EIS = Environmental Impact Statement

For more information on these projects, contact the NEPA Coordinator Martin Weimer at (719) 269-8572 or rgfo_comments@blm.gov
Royal Gorge Field Office
3028 East Main Street
Canon City, Colorado 81212 

Green highlighted actions in the far left NEPA Number column are linked and available for viewing and downloading.

The Royal Gorge Field Office NEPA register contains current EIS, EA, CX and DNA actions.

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

*The Special Designation listing includes the following abbreviations:  WSA (Wilderness Study Area), ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern), WSR (Wild and Scenic River ), or W (Wilderness). A name in this column indicates that the proposed action is within that special designation area.
