BLM Completes Environmental Review of the Blacktail Watershed
The Bureau of Land Management's Dillon Field Office has completed an environmental assessment (EA) covering approximately 63,261 acres of public land on 20 allotments within the Blacktail Watershed in Beaverhead and Madison Counties, Montana. The BLM proposes to improve upland and riparian health and enhance biodiversity through revised livestock grazing management, treatments to Rocky Mountain Juniper in riparian areas, and travel management modifications.
The EA has been mailed to all individuals who expressed an interest in the project and asked to be on the mailing list. The BLM welcomes public comments on the alternatives and the environmental assessment. To be most useful, public comments need to be submitted by May 11, 2007. . If you have questions or would like to receive a copy of the EA, please call Kelly Bockting at the Dillon Field Office at (406) 683-8000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
