The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District is soliciting public comment on the Ely District Public Safety and Nuisance Gather Preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA). The comment period concludes July 30.
The EA analyzes the district’s need to address potential environmental consequences associated with wild horse management in order to reduce and mitigate public safety concerns along major roadways in and outside HMA/HA boundaries, decrease nuisance animal complaints on private lands, and address management issues of wild horses that reside outside HMA/HA boundaries, in accordance with the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971.
The Ely District Public Safety and Nuisance Gather Preliminary Environmental Assessment is available for public review at http://on.doi.gov/1lx856K.
Interested individuals should address all written comments to the BLM Ely District Office, HC 33 Box 33500, Ely, NV 89301, Attn: Rosemary Thomas, Ely District Manager, or fax them to Thomas at (775) 289-1910. Comments may also be submitted electronically at BLM_NV_EYDO_NuisanceHorsesEA@blm.gov. Email comments sent to any other email address will not be considered.
