Upper Big Hole Watershed Assessment Available For Review


The Bureau of Land Management’s Dillon Field Office has completed the Upper Big Hole Watershed Environmental Assessment which includes 6,332 acres in southwest Montana. It is available for public review with a 30-day comment period ending on July 9, 2010.

The EA recommends management direction related to livestock management, structural projects, forest and woodland health treatments, prescribed burns, and/or travel management on 12 grazing allotments and five unallotted parcels within the Upper Big Hole Watershed.

The document provides descriptions and analyses of up to three management alternatives. After reviewing public comments, Field Manager Tim Bozorth will select one of the alternatives or a combination of alternatives for implementation.

The EA is available online at www.blm.gov/mt/st/en/fo/dillon_field_office.html. To request a paper copy of the EA, write to: 1005 Selway Drive, Dillon, MT 59725, call the Dillon Field Office at (406) 683-8000, or email the request to MT_Dillon_FO@blm.gov.

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.
