Mitigation may include avoidance, minimization, rectification, reduction or elimination over time, and compensatory mitigation; and may be considered at multiple scales, including the landscape scale. The BLM-Vernal Field Office Record of Decision and Approved Resource Management Plan (RMP) (October 2008), as amended (September 2015), directs management of the BLMadministered public lands within the project area. The RMP provides for development of valid existing oil and gas leases. An amendment of the RMP is not required in connection with this project. The BLM is the designated lead Federal agency for preparation of the EIS as defined in 40 CFR 1501.5. Agencies with legal jurisdiction or special expertise have been invited to participate as cooperating agencies in preparation of the EIS.
