BLM holding 45-day

public comment period

The BLM has begun a 45-day public comment period for an additional air quality analysis completed for the draft Little Snake Resource Management Plan.

BLM’s draft Little Snake Resource Management Plan, covering 1.3-million acres in northwestern Colorado, was released for public comment in Feb. 2007. After review of the document, BLM conducted additional analyses to better determine potential impacts from management actions on air quality.

Zirkel Wilderness Area might be detectable on no more than five days. To comment and/or review the complete air analysis, visit:, or drop by the Little Snake Field Office, 455 Emerson St., in Craig.
