BLM-Idaho now uses the ePlanning application, a nationwide searchable database for publishing planning and project information, to manage its NEPA Register.
ePlanning brings the land use planning and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) processes to you where you work or live. With an Internet-connected computer, you can open and read land use planning and NEPA documents produced with ePlanning and search for documents on issues such as recreation, wildlife or energy development.
BLM Idaho also uses public participation (scoping) to meet the requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). Information about historic and cultural resources potentially affected by a BLM proposal will help identify impacts to such resources in the context of both NEPA and Section 106 of the NHPA.
