Interbel/Woods Ranch WMA Easement Decision

Decision Notices

Fri May 28 00:00:00 MDT 2010

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has completed an environmental assessment (EA) for the purpose of a utility easement for Interbel Telephone Cooperative (Eureka, Montana) for existing and future communication cables across the Woods Ranch Wildlife Management Area (T37N, R27W, portions of S12; T37N, R26W, S7, 18) in Lincoln County. The draft EA was out for a 15-day public review through May 19, 2010. Two comments were received, both in favor of the project. Based on analysis in the EA, Alternative B, to grant approval of the utility easement, was found to be the preferred alternative. There were no changes to the draft EA; therefore, the draft becomes the final EA. A copy of the decision notice is attached.
