Clark, Lincoln, and White Pine Counties Groundwater Development Project EIS Schedule
Public scoping for the Clark, Lincoln, and White Pine Counties Groundwater Development Project occurred April 8-August 1, 2005 and July 19-October 18, 2006. The Final Summary Scoping Report was prepared and made available to the public in January 2007 and was updated in February 2007.
The Bureau of Land Management began preliminary work on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in 2004. Results from public scoping allowed the BLM to refine the issues and determine the next steps. These steps include identifying the issues to be analyzed in the EIS, addressing data gaps, collecting data, formulating alternatives, and preparing the analysis. The Draft EIS was made available for public review on June 10, 2011. Public meeting dates and locations are shown below:
