  • The alternatives that were considered
  • Identification of environmentally preferable alternative(s)
  • Mitigation measures that were proposed in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and are now adopted into the Record of Decision; if mitigation measures are not adopted, the reasoning should be explained in the ROD
  • Explanation of any monitoring and enforcement program(s) that is adopted into the ROD

The Kane Springs Valley Groundwater Development Project EIS ROD was signed on November 19, 2008. Information about the availability of the ROD was also provided to local media in an official BLM news release.
