The Pinedale Anticline Working Group (PAWG) was authorized and established with release of the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Pinedale Anticline Oil and Gas Exploration and Development Project on July 27, 2000. The PAWG advises the BLM on the development and implementation of monitoring plans and adaptive management decisions as development of the Pinedale Anticline Natural Gas Field (PAPA) proceeds for the life of the field.
After the ROD was issued, Interior determined that a Federal Advisory Committees Act (FACA) charter was required for this group. The charter was signed by Secretary of the Interior, Gale Norton, on August 15, 2002, and renewed on August 13, 2004. An announcement of committee initiation and call for nominations was published in the Federal Register on February 21, 2003, (68 FR 8522). PAWG members were appointed by Secretary Norton on May 4, 2004.
At their second business meeting, the PAWG established seven resource- or activity-specific Task Groups: Air Quality; Water Resources; Reclamation; Wildlife; Socio-Economic; Cultural/Historic/Visual Resources; and Transportation. Public participation on those Task Groups was solicited through the media, letters, and word-of-mouth.
The Task Group meeting agenda will include: Review of Task Group charges from the Pinedale Anticline Oil and Gas Exploration and Development Project ROD and the PAWG (developing monitoring plan(s) for the cultural, historic, and visual resources in the Anticline gas field, identifying who will do the monitoring, and identifying who will pay for the monitoring); developing a strategy to accomplish those tasks for recommendation to the PAWG by February, 2005; selecting Task Group leadership and a proceedings recorder; and setting times, dates, locations, and agendas for subsequent meetings. Public comments will be heard just prior to adjournment of the meeting.Start Signature
