Website Updates Feature One Page for Online Environmental Documents (03-05-13)


DOLORES, Colo. – In a fast-paced, digital world finding documents on webpages quickly and easily is a priority for the Bureau of Land Management’s Tres Rios Field Office.  In order to accommodate the public’s need to review National Environmental Policy Act documents, a newly designed webpage (http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/BLM_Information/nepa/TRFO_NEPA.html) was launched to house all of the environmental documents for the field office.

The NEPA process requires public review and comments during several phases of each project.  These projects include the Resource Management Plan revision, mineral leasing, grazing permit renewals, right-of-way actions, etc. When the BLM needs input on these projects, a press release is sent to the local media explaining the project and encouraging the public to go to the new webpage to review the environmental documents.

“This page features each project the staff is during the current calendar year with links to archived projects from previous years,” said Connie Clementson, Tres Rios field manager. “We encourage the public to bookmark this page and check for regular updates in order to better understand the projects that are ongoing on your public lands.”

For more information or questions about a specific project, contact the Tres Rios staff at (970) 882-7296.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
