|What is the Purpose of the Winnemucca District Office's Resource Management Plan (RMP)?|
The purpose of the Winnemucca District (WD)'s RMP is to serve as:
RMP decisions guide future land management actions and subsequent site-specific implementation decisions. The RMP will:
Management measures outlined in the RMP will apply only to lands managed by the BLM; no measures will be developed for private, tribal, state or other federally owned lands.
In conjunction with the development of the RMP, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is being prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Any federal action that may affect the human or natural environment requires compliance with NEPA and the development of this RMP is such an action. The EIS will evaluate possible environmental and social effects of different management alternatives for BLM managed lands in the WD. Once the EIS is completed, the BLM will prepare a Record of Decision.
