    (MOAB, Utah) - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Utah, Canyon Country District is seeking public input on parcels nominated for the February 2015 Oil and Gas Lease Sale. Following this public scoping period which ends on July 25, 2014, the BLM will prepare an environmental assessment (EA) to analyze potential impacts associated with leasing these nominated parcels. The public is encouraged to provide comments to help the BLM identify relevant issues that will influence the scope of the analysis and guide the development process for the environmental assessment.

    The proposed parcel list is available for review at both the Monticello and Moab Field Offices (see addresses below) and online at: http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/monticello.html and http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/moab.html.

    Written comments will be accepted throughout the public scoping period, which closes on July 25, 2014. Please note that the most useful comments are those that identify issues relevant to the proposed action. Comments which contain only opinions or preferences will not receive a formal response but may be considered in the BLM planning process. Please reference the "February 2015 Oil and Gas Lease Sale" when submitting comments.
