BLM Continues to Review Environmental Assessment for Repairing Equestrian Facility at Meadowood


SPRINGFIELD, Va.—Officials in the Bureau of Land Management Eastern States office announced their intention today, to extend an internal review period of the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the equestrian barn at the Meadowood Special Recreation Management Area in Lorton, Va.  This review is being extended for a minimum of 30 days.  

 

The EA describes the environmental impacts of various alternatives that would rehabilitate the structure, and includes a proposed action that would renovate the barn within its existing footprint.  The EA may be accessed on-line at http://www.blm.gov/es/st/en/fo/lpfo_html/meadowood_ea.html.  

 



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.
