JIO Releases Draft Reclamation Criteria for Public Review
The Jonah Interagency Mitigation and Reclamation Office (JIO) have developed draft reclamation criteria used to measure reclamation success in the Jonah Field. The information is now available for public review and comment.
These criteria are the result of an exhaustive review of existing data from a number of governmental and private sources, multiple site visits to other reclamation locations, study of the ecological status of the Jonah Field, and identifying reasonable expectations for vegetation growth.
Public comments on these criteria will be accepted through Oct. 29, 2006. Please provide written comments to the JIO at: PO Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941 or e-mail JIO_WYMail@blm.gov.
The criteria are available on the JIO Web site at www.wy.blm.gov/jonah_office/news.htm or at the JIO office located at 107 ½ Fremont Street in Pinedale.
