Rock Springs Resource Management Plan Revision
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office has issued a Notice of Intent to revise the Rock Springs Resource Management Plan (RMP) and conduct public scoping for resource information, issues, and concerns. The dates, times and locations for the meetings will be announced at least 15 days in advance of the meeting through local media, news releases, e-mail, mailings and posting on this website.
As part of the RMP preparation, an environmental impact statement (EIS) will also be prepared. The EIS will analyze the impacts of various resource uses and include alternatives for managing approximately 3.6 million surface land acres and 3.5 million acres of mineral estate administered by the BLM in portions of Lincoln, Sweetwater, Uinta, Sublette and Fremont counties in southwestern Wyoming.
The Rock Springs RMP will replace the 1997 Green River RMP as necessitated by emerging resource issues and legislative changes.
