BLM hosting lease site field tours

RBC I The Bureau of Land Management will conduct a public field meeting Sept. 7 to visit three parcels being considered in the White River Field Office for the May 2012, competitive oil and gas lease sale.
The purpose of the meeting is to provide participants an opportunity to see the parcels and express any concerns. Each lease would be issued subject to stipulations identified in the White River Resource Management Plan. Site-specific environmental analyses would also be conducted if any applications to drill wells are received.
The tour will depart at 8 a.m. from the White River Field Office, 220 Market St., Meeker.
Attendees should provide their own transportation in a vehicle capable of handling moderately rough roads. They should be prepared for a full day in the field with proper field attire, adequate water, food and sunscreen.
