Lewistown Resource Management Plan


The Bureau of Land Management’s Lewistown Field Office is in the process of preparing a resource management plan (RMP) and associated environmental impact statement (EIS) to guide management of 654,025 acres of federally managed surface and 1,399,880 acres of BLM-managed federal mineral estate in central Montana.  The plan will be specific to Lewistown Field Office and the northern portion of Lewis and Clark County that is administered by the Butte Field Office.  The planning area includes BLM-administered public lands and mineral estate in Fergus, Petroleum, Judith Basin, Chouteau, Meagher, Cascade, Teton, Pondera and northern Lewis and Clark counties.

The RMP/EIS will reflect the changing needs of the planning area over the next several decades and will replace the current Headwaters and Judith RMPs that were developed in 1984 and 1994.

The purpose of the RMP will be to establish goals and objectives for resource management; identify lands that are open or available for certain uses, including any restrictions, and lands that are administratively unavailable to certain uses; provide comprehensive management direction for all resources and uses; and make broad-scale decisions guiding future site-specific implementation decisions.
