Notice of Intent to Prepare Additional Air Quality Analysis
Information for the Little Snake Draft Resource Management Plan and
Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS)

AGENCY: Little Snake Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of Intent.


SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as
amended (NEPA, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Bureau of Land Management
(BLM), Little Snake Field Office, Colorado, announces its intent to
prepare additional air quality information. On February 9, 2007, the
BLM published a Notice of Availability in the Federal Register (Vol.
72, No. 27, pages 6284-6285) announcing the release of the Draft EIS
for public review and comment. The 90-day comment period closed May 16,
2007. During the public comment period, the Environmental Protection
Agency, in consultation with BLM, identified areas where additional air
quality information would improve the existing analysis in the Draft
EIS. As a result, the BLM is preparing an additional air quality
analysis. When the additional air quality analysis has been completed,
the BLM will present the information for public review and comment. At
that time, BLM will only accept comments from the public pertaining to
the new air quality information.

DATES: The BLM anticipates making the additional air quality analysis
information available to the public for a 45-day comment period around
May 2008. The BLM will publish a Notice of Availability in the Federal
Register when the additional air quality analysis is ready for release
for public comment. Announcements will also be made through local media
by news releases and posted information on the Little Snake Resource
Management Plan Revision Web site:

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeremy Casterson, Project Manager,
Little Snake Field Office, 455 Emerson St., Craig, Colorado 81625, or
by telephone at (970) 826-5071.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public comments submitted on the additional
air quality analysis for the Draft EIS, including names, e-mail
addresses, and street addresses of the respondents, will be available
for public review and disclosure at the above address during regular
office business hours (7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday,
except holidays. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail
address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you
should be aware that your entire comment--including your personal
identifying information--may be made publicly available at any time.
While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we
will be able to do so.
