Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for a Proposed Liquid Petroleum Products Pipeline From Woods Cross, UT, to Northeast Las Vegas, NV
Document Number: E7-15580
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-08-09
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Land Management Bureau
Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 4332, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will be directing the preparation of an EIS and conducting public scoping meetings for the proposed construction of a 12'' liquid petroleum products pipeline. UNEV, LLC was established by Holly Corporation to construct and operate the pipeline. The proposed route for the UNEV Pipeline is approximately 400 miles in length and would, except for the northernmost portion of the route, generally follow the existing Kern River pipeline corridor. The pipeline inlet would be located near Holly Corporation's Woods Cross, Utah, refinery, which announced last year its intent to upgrade its crude oil processing capabilities, enabling the refinery to process high value, low priced black wax crude oil and heavy Canadian crude oils. The outlet terminals for the proposed pipeline would be located northwest of Cedar City, Utah, and northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to the inlet pumping station, one additional pumping station is proposed with pressure reduction stations located at the terminals. The corridor contains two Kern River Pipeline Company natural gas pipelines, the newest of which was constructed in 2003. The Kern River Pipeline Environmental Impact Statement was completed in 2002. In Utah the proposed UNEV Pipeline would originate in Davis County and cross Salt Lake, Tooele, Juab, Millard, Beaver, Iron, and Washington Counties. In Nevada the pipeline would cross Lincoln County and terminate in Clark County. A map of the proposed project is available for viewing at http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/prog/more/landsand realty/unevpipelineeis.html and the Utah and Nevada State Offices. The UNEV Pipeline project as proposed would function as a ``common carrier'' pipeline. In general terms, common carrier is an entity that transports goods or products and offers its transportation services to others. This means that the UNEV Pipeline would provide an alternative means of transportation from other modes, i.e., truck or rail, etc., for refined products from other refineries in the area as well as Holly's refinery.

Date: 2007-08-08
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Land Management Bureau
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has examined and determined that two parcels of public land comprising 9.6 acres, more or less, located in Custer and Lemhi Counties, Idaho are suitable for a renewable, direct (non-competitive), 20-year agricultural use lease to The Nature Conservancy (TNC) pursuant to Section 302 (b) of The Federal Land Policy Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1732 (b)), and the implementing regulations at 43 CFR part 2920, as amended. This action will resolve an historic encroachment occurring on public lands. The encroachment dating back to on or before 1976 was originally attributed to parties from whom TNC purchased property (adjacent to the subject parcels) in 2003. Rent for the use was determined by Department of the Interior appraisal to be BLM minimum annual lease fee of $250.00. Rent may be re-appraised annually, or at an interval not to exceed every 5 years to remain consistent with market trends.

Notice of Availability of the Record of Decision To Amend Resource Management Plans To Remove the Survey and Manage Mitigation Measure Standards and Guidelines
Document Number: E7-14664
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-27
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Land Management Bureau
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA, 43 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces the availability of the Record of Decision (ROD) to amend selected portions of the 1994 Record of Decision for the Northwest Forest Plan by removing the Survey and Manage Mitigation Measure Standards and Guidelines. The ROD amends Resource Management Plans for the BLM Districts in western Oregon and northwestern California. The U.S. Forest Service is expected to concurrently announce a similar decision amending their respective Land and Resource Management Plans. Under the Northwest Forest Plan, Survey and Manage added conservation measures for rare and little known species to BLM and U.S. Forest Service requirements for providing for late successional and old growth forest-related species. These Survey and Manage Standards and Guidelines had made it difficult for the BLM and the U.S. Forest Service to meet the other resource management goals set forth in the Northwest Forest Plan (i.e. timber harvest, hazardous fuels treatment, and ecosystem restoration). Although the Survey and Manage Standards and Guidelines are removed with this decision, conservation of rare and little known species will continue to be accomplished through the other elements of the Northwest Forest Plan and the BLM and U.S. Forest Service's Special Status Species Programs.
