The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO) is seeking public comment on a proposed single well pad located on an existing improved access road in the Miller Mountain area approximately 14 miles southwest of LaBarge, Wyo.

The proposed project is located in Township 26 North, Range 115 West, Sec. 35, NWNE. It is in a Class II Visual Resource Management Area and in the Miller Mountain Management Area as defined by the Pinedale Resource Management Plan. The project area is popular with outdoor recreationists and used by sage-grouse, elk, mule deer and pronghorn.

The PFO will prepare an environmental assessment and public comments will help identify alternatives, issues associated with the proposal, potential effects of the proposed action and possible mitigation measures that can be incorporated to reduce those effects.
