Spring Creek Basin Management Plan to Be Updated

BLM announced yesterday the opening of a comment period on proposed changes to the management plan for the Spring Creek Basin HMA in western Colorado.

The HMA covers 21,932 acres and has an AML of 65, for an aimed-at population density (stocking rate) of three wild horses per thousand acres.

Details were not provided in the letter to interested parties but the scope includes two new water catchment structures, presumably within the HMA.

Comments can be submitted at this page.  The environmental assessment is pending.

The letter did not indicate if the horses must share the land with other mandated users.
