BLM Pinedale Anticline Working Group Hosts Meeting


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Anticline Working Group (PAWG) has scheduled one of its quarterly meetings for Thursday, Nov. 4, 2010, at 10 a.m. in the Pinedale Field Office Rendezvous Room.

This meeting will focus on a US Geological Survey progress report on the vegetation and wildlife database, an update on the Geomatrix report, a summary of activities from the Sublette County Conservation District, a review of the PAWG bylaws, and the establishment of a task-specific Water Quality subcommittee.

The PAWG is tasked with providing balanced recommendations to the BLM on the development and implementation of monitoring plans, mitigation strategies, and adaptive management pertinent to oil and gas activities in the Pinedale Anticline Project Area. Additional information about the PAWG can be found at: www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/pinedale/pawg.html, or by contacting Shelley Gregory 307-367-5328 or shelley_gregory@blm.gov.



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.
