BLM Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Adaptive Management


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comment on a proposed adaptive management (AM) change to the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement Record of Decision (ROD).

The Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) has proposed minor wording changes in ROD Appendix C, Page C-1, to allow for revision of the PAPA Monitoring for Reclamation Success Plan. The revision will provide clarification and further guidance about the implementation of the plan to meet ROD reclamation requirements.

The formal AM proposal and associated documents are available at http://www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/papo/index.htm and at http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Pinedale/anticline.html. If approved, the changes to reclamation monitoring methodologies and the monitoring schedule would be implemented during the 2012 season.

Written comments on the AM proposal will be accepted until close of business April 25, 2012, and must be mailed or delivered to Eric Decker, Pinedale Field Office, 1625 W. Pine St., P.O. Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941 or emailed to egdecker@blm.gov.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment – including your personal identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

For additional information please contact PAPO Project Coordinator Eric Decker at 307-367-5386.
