Draft EA for Diamond Valley Oil Well Available for Public Review

Comments will be accepted until February 11, according to Thursday’s news release, and can be submitted by email, as explained in the project description.

Table B2 in the EA indicates that the Proposed Action, discussed in Section 2.2, would affect 4.8 acres of the Diamond Hills North HMA and 0.3 acres of the Diamonds Hills South HMA, displacing 1/200th of a wild horse at typical stocking rates.

The total surface disturbance is 26.9 acres, as detailed in Table 2-1.

Losses attributable to permitted grazing, which affects entire HMAs and beyond, are far greater.

The Proposed Action includes 4.3 acres of the Red Rock Allotment, per Table B2.
