BLM issues Finding of No Significant Impact on Eureka Pipeline Project

Posted: Updated:
From the BLM:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Elko District Office, Tuscarora Field Office signed a Decision Record (DR) and Findings of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for a pipeline right of way in Eureka County, Nevada. 
 
Prospector Pipeline Company will bury a 12-inch diameter pipe along an 18-mile route and deliver natural gas from the North Elko Pipeline to Newmont’s Leeville and Gold Quarry mines, providing a reliable supply of natural gas and eliminating the need for current seasonal propane usage. The project will improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions, and enhance safety. The pipeline requires a 100-foot wide temporary right-of-way (125 feet in areas where the slope is 20 percent or greater) during construction, and a 30-foot wide permanent right-of-way after construction is complete.  The pipeline does not traverse any wild horse herd management areas.
 
The EA analyzes the impacts of constructing and operating an underground natural gas pipeline on public and private lands located in Eureka Counties.  The EA is available for viewing online at http://on.doi.gov/1idqvaF.
