BLM Worland Releases Doc Holliday Road EA

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announces that an environmental assessment (EA) analyzing a proposal to reopen an abandoned road in Murphy Dome Draw is available for public review.

Legacy Reserves Operating LP (Legacy) has submitted a proposal to reopen an abandoned road in Murphy Dome Draw, ending at the Doc Holliday 3-30 Well. The road will allow upgraded access to leases held by Legacy. The portion of the road across public lands to be improved is approximately 7,925 feet long and crosses 0.31 acres of wetlands which were created in Murphy Dome Draw after the road was abandoned. In conformance with Army Core of Engineers regulations, 0.31 acres of wetland would be created to mitigate the loss.

An EA was written to analyze the effects of the proposed project. The EA, unsigned finding of no significant impact and other applicable documents are available for review by visiting the BLM website at
