The purpose of the Environmental Assessment (EA) is to disclose and analyze the environmental consequences of renewing a Free-Use Gravel pit to Modoc County. The EA is a site-specific analysis of potential impacts that could result with the implementation of the alternatives. The EA assists the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in project planning and ensuring compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and with other laws and policies affecting the alternatives. If the decision maker determines that this project has "significant" impacts following the analysis in the EA, then an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared for the project. If not, a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) statement will be prepared, documenting the reasons why implementation of the selected alternative would not result in "significant" environmental impacts.
The public review and comment period ended on January 9, 2012.
Decision Record and FONSI Issued on 1/26/2012.
Free Use Permit issued 2/13/2012.
