SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM prepared the draft RMPA and associated EA to analyze the potential impacts of modifying the boundary of the Blanca Wetlands Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). The current ACEC boundary and management decisions for resources are described in the San Luis Resource Area Approved RMP (December 1991). The formal public scoping process for the RMPA and EA began on October 11, 2011, with the publication of a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register. Major issues considered in the RMPA and associated EA include geological and paleontological resources; vegetation and soils; wildlife and terrestrial habitat; aquatic, wetlands and riparian areas; water resources; cultural resources; recreation; science and education; livestock grazing; transportation and travel management; lands and realty; and special designations. The draft RMPA and associated EA evaluate the No Action Alternative and two alternatives for modifying the boundary of the Blanca Wetlands ACEC (Alternatives 1 and 2). The BLM identified Alternative 1 as the preferred alternative. The No Action Alternative would retain the current management direction and Blanca Wetlands ACEC boundary (9,147 acres) specified in the 1991 San Luis Resource Area RMP. Alternative 1 would enlarge the Blanca Wetlands ACEC to 122,762 acres. Alternative 2 would enlarge the Blanca Wetlands ACEC to 99,062 acres. Both Alternatives 1 and 2 would provide special management to maintain and improve wetlands for waterfowl production, enhance historical wetlands, and emphasize recreation related to warm water fisheries and watchable wildlife. Neither alternative specifies any new resource use VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:04 Nov 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 limitations for the expanded portion of the Blanca Wetlands ACEC. The BLM would establish appropriate resource use limitations in the future as wetlands are developed. No new water rights would be created and no land ownership jurisdictions would change should the boundary be expanded as a result of any alternative. Pursuant to 43 CFR 1610.7–2(b), this notice announces a concurrent public comment period on the proposed expanded ACEC. Please note that public comments will be available for public review and disclosure at the above address during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM prepared the draft RMPA and 
associated EA to analyze the potential impacts of modifying the 
boundary of the Blanca Wetlands Area of Critical Environmental Concern 
(ACEC). The current ACEC boundary and management decisions for 
resources are described in the San Luis Resource Area Approved RMP 
(December 1991).
    The formal public scoping process for the RMPA and EA began on 
October 11, 2011, with the publication of a Notice of Intent in the 
Federal Register. Major issues considered in the RMPA and associated EA 
include geological and paleontological resources; vegetation and soils; 
wildlife and terrestrial habitat; aquatic, wetlands and riparian areas; 
water resources; cultural resources; recreation; science and education; 
livestock grazing; transportation and travel management; lands and 
realty; and special designations.
    The draft RMPA and associated EA evaluate the No Action Alternative 
and two alternatives for modifying the boundary of the Blanca Wetlands 
ACEC (Alternatives 1 and 2). The BLM identified Alternative 1 as the 
preferred alternative. The No Action Alternative would retain the 
current management direction and Blanca Wetlands ACEC boundary (9,147 
acres) specified in the 1991 San Luis Resource Area RMP. Alternative 1 
would enlarge the Blanca Wetlands ACEC to 122,762 acres. Alternative 2 
would enlarge the Blanca Wetlands ACEC to 99,062 acres. Both 
Alternatives 1 and 2 would provide special management to maintain and 
improve wetlands for waterfowl production, enhance historical wetlands, 
and emphasize recreation related to warm water fisheries and watchable 
wildlife. Neither alternative specifies any new resource use 
limitations for the expanded portion of the Blanca Wetlands ACEC. The 
BLM would establish appropriate resource use limitations in the future 
as wetlands are developed. No new water rights would be created and no 
land ownership jurisdictions would change should the boundary be 
expanded as a result of any alternative.
    Pursuant to 43 CFR 1610.7-2(b), this notice announces a concurrent 
public comment period on the proposed expanded ACEC.
    Please note that public comments will be available for public 
review and disclosure at the above address during regular business 
hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays.
    Before including your address, phone number, email address, or

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.
