Public Comments Sought on Pinedale Anticline Noise Report


The Pinedale Anticline Project Office (PAPO) is seeking public comments on the revised 2013 acoustic noise report on sound levels at Greater Sage-Grouse leks in the Pinedale Anticline natural gas field.

The report contains the results of a study that monitored sound levels at 19 leks within the Anticline, sound levels at 17 gas field activity sound sources near leks and sound levels at three leks outside the Anticline to determine baseline ambient noise.

The report was revised to add non-technical language for clarification and explanatory purposes. It is available for review at www.wy.blm.gov/jio-papo/papo/index.htm.

Written comments identifying specific issues, concerns or ideas should be emailed to egdecker@blm.gov with “Noise Report Comment” in the subject line; faxed to 307-367-5329; or mailed or delivered to the PAPO, Attn: Eric Decker, P.O. Box 768, 1625 W. Pine St., Pinedale WY 82941 by June 25. The PAPO will not respond directly to comments but will take them into consideration for the final report.
