Get Involved/Contact Us
Public participation is critical to helping ensure the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has considered the views of the public in the decision on these groundwater development projects. BLM encourages you to get involved; we want to hear from you.
The first opportunity to get involved was the public scoping period, which extended from March 31, 2006 to May 1, 2006. Although the deadline to submit comments was May 1, 2006 in order to have the comments represented in the Final Summary Scoping Report, the BLM accepts and reviews comments received throughout the entire process.
The second opportunity to get involved was the Draft EIS comment period, which began on June 10, 2011 and extended through October 11, 2011. You can review the Draft EIS on this website or request a copy of the document using the contact information below. Public meeting were held at the following locations and dates:
