The Bureau of Land Management has wrapped up its comment period about the leases under question in the White River National Forest.

The BLM is currently running an Environmental Impact Study on some existing oil and gas leases, leases they’ve already given out.

"The BLM is looking at 65 existing leases on the White River National Forest," said David Boyd, a BLM spokesman.  "BLM either needs to adopt the Forest Service analysis, or do our own.  Back in '93, we did not do either of those, so we're we're doing this Environmental Impact Study now to address that."

On A Drive Around Grand Mesa A Geologist Explains Why It's Prone To Slide
