Welcome to the South Dakota RMP Website

The South Dakota Draft Resource Management and Environmental Impact Statement (DRMP/EIS) is now available online. The DRMP/EIS updates the 1986 South Dakota Resource Management Plan.

The revised South Dakota Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement will provide direction for approximately 274,000 surface acres and over 1.7 million acres of mineral estate (subsurface acres) in the state for the next 10-15 years.

An integral component of the South Dakota RMP is public involvement. Throughout the project, stakeholders and residents will have opportunities to participate and share their insights and comments.

This website is your source of information for participating in the planning process. Here you will find the latest information on the development of the RMP and the EIS, including background documents, maps, meeting announcements, published bulletins, and other documents.
