BLM releases decision record on Bear Den Pipeline project
DICKINSON, N. D. --- The Bureau of Land Management has released a Finding of No Significant Impact and Decision Record on the proposed Bear Den pipeline project in North Dakota.
The Decision Record as well as appeal information and guidance are available on the web at: http://blm.gov/s8kd.
The BLM is the designated lead federal agency for preparation of the EA. The U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are cooperating agencies.
The BLM’s Environmental Assessment, preferred alternative authorizes construction, operation and maintenance of crude oil gathering and produced water conveyance pipelines.
The Project will gather crude oil from numerous wells in McKenzie and Dunn Counties, south of Lake Sakakawea, east of Watford City and deposit the oil at a central storage and transfer facility near Highway 85, south of Watford City. The Project will also convey produced water from numerous oil wells to a disposal well regulated by the State of North Dakota.
To obtain a hard copy or CD of the EA and associated documents, contact Linda Gisvold at the North Dakota Field Office, 99 23rd Avenue West, Dickinson, ND 58601, (701)227-7700.
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 multiple-use mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2012, activities on public lands generated $4.6 billion in revenue, much of which was shared with the States where the activities occurred. In addition, public lands contributed more than $112 billion to the U.S. economy and helped support more than 500,000 jobs.
