The Bureau of Land Management is hosting public meetings in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming to answer questions about and solicit comments on its oil shale and tar sands Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (Draft PEIS).
In Colorado, the meeting will be held Monday, March 12, at the BLM Colorado River Valley Office, 2300 River Frontage Road, in Silt.
It begins at 7 p.m.
BLM officials will be on hand to take written comments and assist with the commenting process. The Draft PEIS is being prepared by the BLM to assess a range of management alternatives for future oil-shale and tar sands activities on public lands. The Notice of Availability of the Draft PEIS was issued in the Federal Register on Feb. 3. A 90-day public comment period began that day and will close on May 4.
Written comments on the Draft PEIS should be submitted by May 4 using an online comment form on the Draft PEIS website at http://ostseis.anl.gov. This is the preferred method for commenting. Comments may also be submitted by regular mail to: Oil Shale and Tar Sands Draft Programmatic EIS, Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 South Cass Avenue, EVS 240, Argonne, IL 60439.blog comments powered by Disqus
