Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: Prineville
Resource Area: Prineville DO
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-P000-2011-0018-EA   Environmental Assessment / FONSI
Document Publish Date: 7/01/2011
Summary: This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the Prineville Field Office's proposed Road Maintenance. The EA includes an analysis of potential effects that could result with implementation of a proposed action or alternatives to the proposed action. The EA assists the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in project planning, ensuring compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and in making a determination as to whether any "significant" impacts could result from the analyzed actions. "Significance" is defined by NEPA and is found in regulation 40 CFR 1508.27. An EA provides evidence for determining whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a "Finding of No Significant Impact" (FONSI). A FONSI is a document that briefly presents the reasons why implementation of the proposed actions will not result in "significant" environmental impacts (effects) beyond those already addressed in Resource Management Plans (RMPs) for the Prineville District BLM. If the decision maker determines that this project has "significant" impacts following the analysis in the EA, then an EIS would be prepared for the project.
