ACTION: Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with Section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the BLM in Oregon is beginning preparation of a programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to analyze the use of 18 nationally approved herbicides to control noxious weeds; to treat invasive plants and other weeds in administrative sites, recreation sites, and rights-of-way; to treat forest pests and diseases; and to meet noncommodity landscape health objectives across nine BLM Districts in Oregon. This EIS will tier to, and adopt procedures from, the programmatic Vegetation Treatments Using Herbicides on BLM Lands in 17 Western States EIS and Record of Decision (ROD) completed by the BLM in 2007 for the same 18 herbicides. The EIS will not amend existing District Resource Management Plans (RMPs). DATES: Publication of this notice initiates a scoping period that runs through July 28, 2008. Written or emailed comments are being sought to help identify the relevant issues and environmental concerns, identify possible alternatives, and help determine the scope of the EIS. During the scoping period, the BLM will hold public scoping meetings in Oregon, at or near each of the nine BLM District Offices and in Klamath Falls and Baker City, to describe the proposal and solicit ideas for issues and alternatives to be considered in the EIS. Times and locations are included in SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION below and will be announced through local press releases, advertisements, and the project Web site.

Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. The minutes and list of attendees for each scoping meeting will be available to the public and any participant who wishes to clarify the views he or she expressed may do so through the end of the scoping period. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BLM manages 15.7 million acres in Oregon. Invasive plants (including noxious weeds) affect over a million of these acres and are increasing at an estimated 10 to 15 percent per year. Invasive plants degrade soil and water quality, displace native vegetation, and negatively alter habitat for fish and wildlife. Noxious weeds, invasive plants, and other weeds also encroach on rights-of-ways and administrative and recreation sites. Currently, the BLM utilizes an integrated pest management approach for invasive plant and other weed management; which includes education, early detection and prevention measures, as well as manual, mechanical, cultural, biological, and chemical vegetation controls. However, chemical control on BLM lands in Oregon is currently limited to the use of four approved herbicides, and those are limited to treatment of federal-, state-, and county-designated noxious weeds (a subset of the invasive plants). To improve the overall effectiveness of Oregon BLM’s integrated pest management program, there is a need for access to a broader array of herbicides that are generally less toxic, more target-specific, and more effective at controlling noxious weeds, invasive plants, and other weeds.
