BLM opens public comment period

BLM opens comment period for Little Snake air quality analysis

The Bureau of Land Management 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. Following review of the document, BLM conducted additional analyses to better determine potential impacts from management actions on air quality.

The analysis indicated that impacts would not exceed any air quality standards in any of the four alternatives in the plan.
