Pinedale BLM Seeks Public Input on
Proposed Range Improvement Project


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office is seeking public input on a proposal to construct a water facility to improve livestock distribution on the North Pasture Individual Allotment.

In order to improve upland habitat through better livestock distribution, BLM is proposing to construct a pipeline to transport water from private lands to an upland area of the allotment and to install a storage tank and stock watering tank on BLM-administered public lands.

The North Pasture Individual Allotment is included in the MJ Ranch Easement conservation plan and the project would be funded through the Jonah Interagency Office.

For more information or to obtain a copy of the scoping notice, contact Cara Farr at 307-367-5339. Written comments may be sent to: BLM Pinedale Field Office, Attn: Cara Farr, 1625 West Pine, Pinedale, Wyo. or mailed to P.O. Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941. Comments can also be emailed to: Cara_Farr@blm.gov. Comments will be accepted Jan. 15 through Feb. 15, 2010.



The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
