Nez Perce Integrated Resource Management Plan Notice of Intent
December 10, 2015

A Notice of Intent was published on December 7, 2015 in the Federal Register advising the public that the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) as lead agency intends to prepare a programmatic environmental impact statement (PEIS) and conduct public scoping meetings to evaluate potential environmental impacts of the proposed Integrated Resource Management Plan (IRMP) for the 770,000 acre Nez Perce Reservation located in north central Idaho. The PEIS will be prepared in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The proposed action is the preparation of an IRMP for the Nez Perce Reservation and the BIA approval of long-term natural and cultural resource planning goals and objectives for the Nez Perce Reservation. The Tribe may use the Programmatic EIS for tiered, project-specific environmental assessments to cover specific actions as the IRMP is implemented. AES is assisting the BIA with the preparation of the EIS.
