Proposal
Two Great-Basin-Wide Programmatic Environmental Impact Statements to Reduce the Threat of Wildfires and Support Rangeland Productivity: 1) Fuel Breaks Programmatic EIS and 2) Fuels Reduction and Rangeland Restoration Programmatic EIS.
 
 
 
The BLM is proposing to develop two landscape scale Programmatic Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) to analyze potential effects of constructing fuel breaks, reducing fuel loading, and restoring rangeland productivity within the Great Basin Region (specifically Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, northern California, Utah, and eastern Washington) in order to protect and conserve the sagebrush-steppe ecosystem from loss as a result of wildfires.  BLM is proposing to prepare these analyses concurrently to gain efficiencies in scoping and effects analyses.  The goal of these Programmatic EISs is to significantly minimize the subsequent National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) work required to approve on-the-ground projects.
