Pinedale Anticline Working Group to Meet


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Anticline Working Group (PAWG) will hold its quarterly meeting at 9 a.m. on Nov. 8 in the Pinedale Field Office’s Rendezvous Room at 1625 W. Pine St. in Pinedale, Wyo.

Topics of discussion will include an update on the schedule for meeting air quality milestones, a review of the recommendation drafted at the previous PAWG meeting in August, a discussion of vacancies on the PAWG and an update on the wildlife over- and under-passes on State Highway 191.

The PAWG will also be asked to provide advice regarding the use of enhanced reclamation practices developed for oil and gas disturbance as a result of the Wildlife Monitoring and Mitigation Matrix mule deer trigger in 2010.

The agenda for the Nov. 8 meeting is available on the PAWG webpage at http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Pinedale/pawg.html and at the Sublette County Library at 155 S. Tyler Ave. in Pinedale.

The PAWG recognizes that not all interested parties are able to attend meetings in person. Any member of the public is encouraged to submit suggestions or questions regarding meeting topics to BLM_WY_PAWG@blm.gov.

For more information, please contact Pinedale Field Manager Shane DeForest at 307-367-5302 or sdefores@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.
