Annotation: The FSEIS describes alternatives for expanding development of the Pinedale Anticline Oil and Gas Exploration and Development Project and evaluates their environmental impacts. Chapter 4 discusses potential impacts to species and includes some BMP's, but information is mainly limited to general information on species, background info, etc.
Required vs.
Recommended -- An EIS evaluates alternatives and does not include a decision to implement a particular alternative. Unless specific practices are explicitly noted in the NEPA document as "required", this website considered all management practices in a draft or final EIS as "recommended."
Ownership: Federal -- BLM decisions and recommendations generally apply only to BLM-administered lands, which include Federal surface estate, subsurface mineral estate, or both. They do not apply to surface or subsurface mineral estate over which the BLM has no jurisdiction.
