BLM Announces Public Comment Period
Lawrence / Tan Seeps ROW Amendment
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Price Field Office announces a
15-day public comment period from May 26, through June 9, 2011, for
the proposed Lawrence /Tan Seeps ROW Amendment Environmental
Assessment (EA). The EA describes the potential impacts of Emery
County's proposal to add approximately 2.1 miles in length and to
authorize the proposed upgrades.
The BLM is considering amending a right-of-way (ROW) currently held
by Emery County. All activities associated with construction,
operation, and maintenance of the road would be within the authorized
limits of the ROW. Any future realignment, reconstruction, or
maintenance outside the authorized area must be authorized by amending
Emery County has applied for an amendment to their existing ROW grant
UTU-57143 for an additional 2.1 miles in length to include portions of
the road immediately adjacent to I-70 at exit 131. The amendment
would include hard surfacing of the ROW to eliminate fugitive dust
Additional information about this project is included in the EA
available for public review and comment. An electronic copy of the EA
can be found on the BLM's Environmental Notification Bulletin Board
(ENBB) at https://www.blm.gov/ut/enbb/index.php or a hard copy can be
obtained from the Price Field Office upon request. Comments which
contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal
response. However, they will be considered in the BLM decision-making
process. The most useful comments are those that identify
alternatives, identify issues relevant to the proposal, or contain new
technical or scientific information.
Please reference the Lawrence / Tan Seeps ROW Amendment EA when
submitting comments. Comments, including names, e-mail addresses, and
street addresses of respondents will be available for public review at
the BLM Price Field Office during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to
4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday), except federal holidays.
Please include a mailing or e-mail address, phone number, or other
personal identifying information with comments. The BLM will not
consider anonymous comments. Individual respondents may request
confidentiality. If you wish to withhold your name, street address,
or email address from public review and disclosure under the FOIA, you
must state this prominently at the beginning of your written comment.
Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by law. All
submissions from organizations or businesses will be made available
for public inspection in their entirety.
Written comments will be accepted during the public comment period
from May 26, through June 9, 2011. Please submit written comments to:
