BLM Perspective on CBNG Research and Monitoring Needs: 

BLM Perspective on CBNG Research and Monitoring Needs Alan Kesterke Associate State Director BLM Wyoming State Office

Background: BLM’s Role In CBNG: 

Background: BLM’s Role In CBNG Mission: Provide Multiple Resource Management on Federal Lands in Wyoming Perform Land Use Planning & NEPA Support: e.g., Powder River Basin Oil and Gas Environmental Impact Statement Record of Decision (ROD) Regulatory: Authorize the Use, Monitor Activities for Compliance and Manage Resources Adaptively Collaborate with Stakeholders: State, Federal and Local Entities by Various Means, e.g., MT / WY PRB EIS Air, Water &Wildlife Working Groups, etc.
