BLM Approves New Fork-East Fork
Confluence Boat Ramp Improvement Project


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office has released a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Decision Record (DR) for the New Fork-East Fork Confluence Boat Ramp Improvement Project and Environmental Assessment (EA) located southwest of Boulder, Wyo. in Sublette County.

The BLM is upgrading the existing river access to reduce resource problems and improve boating access for river floating and fishing. Anglers are currently using this site near the confluence of the New Fork and East Fork Rivers to launch and retrieve boats. The site is a convenient take-out point for floaters coming from the Boulder Bridge. It is also a good place to put in for those going to the “Gas Wells” area, or the bridge on Highway 351.

The DR authorizes the improvement of the site as analyzed in the EA. Printed copies of the document are available for review at: Bureau of Land Management, Pinedale Field Office, 1625 West Pine Street, Pinedale, Wyo., 82941. Or online at: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/pfodocs/NFEFboatramp.html 

For more information please contact the BLM Pinedale Field Office at 307-367-5300, or visit the office at 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale, Wyo.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
