    BLM Seeks Comment on Reduction of 
Hazardous Fuels near Price

	Price, Utah-The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah, Canyon Country
Fire Zone and Price Field Office are seeking  comments on an
environmental assessment (EA) analyzing the potential impacts of
hazardous fuels reduction on 62,250 acres of public land east of
Sunnyside, Utah, in the Range Creek area.

	The proposed Range Creek fuels reduction and vegetation restoration
project would thin pinyon-juniper stands, decadent sagebrush and treat
invasive cheatgrass using a variety of treatments, including:
mechanical shredding, hand thinning and piling, prescribed burning,
herbicides, and biological control (grazing).  Additionally,
re-seeding in some areas would support ecosystem health and improve
wildlife habitat.  Reducing hazardous fuels will lessen the potential
for high intensity wild fires in the Range Creek area. 

	An electronic copy of the EA can be found on the Environmental
Notification Bulletin Board (ENBB) at:; search for project name "Range

technical or scientific information.  Comments which contain only
opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response but may be
