The Casper RMP provides future direction for managing 1.4 million acres of BLM-administered surface land and 4.7 million acres of BLM-administered mineral estate in Converse, Goshen, Natrona and Platte counties in Wyoming.
The RMP establishes goals and objectives for resource management; identifies lands that are open or available for certain uses, including any restrictions, and lands that are closed to certain uses; provide scomprehensive management direction for all resources and uses; and makes broad scale decisions guiding future site-specific implementation decisions.
As part of the planning process, a supporting environmental impact statement (EIS) was prepared. Both the RMP and EIS were developed concurrently with a full range of public participation.
