The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office will host the annual planning meeting (APM) for air, water and socioeconomic topics at 8 a.m. on August 5 at 1625 W. Pine St. in Pinedale, Wyoming.
Air topics will include a U.S. Forest Service discussion on the IMPROVE air monitoring station, the National Atmospheric Deposition Program, lake chemistry and tri-state air quality; a BLM update on general conformity, the Ozone Compliance Plan and other air quality issues; a Department of Environmental Quality presentation on air quality rule making and proposed changes to nonattainment rules; and an operator report on air quality in the Anticline.
Water topics will include a Sublette County Conservation District presentation on 2012 surface and groundwater sampling; an operator report on water use; and a BLM update on the Final Groundwater Monitoring Plan.
Socioeconomic topics will include operator development forecasts and planned operations based on current commodities.
The meeting is open to the public who will have opportunities to comment. An agenda is available at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Pinedale/anticline/airwatermtg.html. Agenda items and times are subject to change.
An APM is required by the 2008 Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement Record of Decision for the Pinedale Anticline Project Area (PAPA). To more fully address topics of community interest, the PFO has subdivided the original APM into three annual meetings focused on development, wildlife, and air, water and socioeconomics. This is the fourth APM for air, water and socioeconomics.
