Pinedale BLM Invites Public to On-site Visit July 29


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is inviting the public to participate Wednesday, July 29, in an on-site visit to a proposed gas well site in the Stewart Point area.

The proposed well pad would be located in a sensitive viewshed area as defined by the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) Record of Decision, and the Class III Visual Resource Management Area as defined by the Pinedale Resource Management Plan. "The proposal involves a multi- well pad to be located about 2.3 miles southwest of Pinedale and 1.4 miles north of Stewart Point," said Tim Zebulske, BLM Pinedale natural resource specialist.

Participants will meet at 8:45 a.m. at the BLM Pinedale office at 1625 West Pine Street. Two hours have been allotted for the public to review the proposal in the field, beginning at 9:00 a.m. If you plan to join the tour drive, higher clearance vehicles are recommended, but four-wheel drive vehicles are not required. Sturdy footwear, sunscreen, insect repellant and drinking water are also recommended.

Along with public comment during the on-site visit, written comments may be submitted electronically to Pinedale_WYMail@blm.gov through August 14, 2009. Please write: "SWEPI Stewart Point well pad" in the subject line, or mail to Tim Zebulske; BLM Pinedale Field Office; P.O. Box 768, 1625 West Pine Street; Pinedale, WY 82941.
