Pinedale BLM Releases Ozone Modeling Analysis Supplement

The Ozone Modeling Analysis Supplement for the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA) Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) has been released for public comment.

"The ozone modeling effort for the SEIS shows no exceedence of air quality standards, but does predict increases in concentrations of atmospheric ozone. The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulate and monitor air quality standards in Wyoming. The BLM will cooperate fully with the WDEQ and EPA to develop and implement any adaptive management strategies to mitigate project related effects," said Matt Anderson, PAPA SEIS project lead in the Pinedale BLM office.

This 45-day comment period on the supplemental air analysis and Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) will last until Friday, April 6, 2007. The Ozone Modeling Analysis can be viewed at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/pfodocs/anticline/seis.html.

Copies or CDs of the Ozone Modeling Analysis Supplement are available at the Pinedale Field Office, 432 E Mill St., Pinedale, Wyoming 82941.
