We are currently accepting questions and comments on the project through April 1, 2022. This is not part of the formal comment process required by NEPA. The Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is anticipated to occur in late April 2022, which would start the 30-day public scoping process.  If you have any questions/comments now regarding the project, please send them to Project Manager Greg Helseth at ghelseth@blm.gov prior to April 2022.  The table below provides examples of how to provide effective input.
