OHV Air Quality Monitoring - West Mojave Desert
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in cooperation with Regional Air Pollution Control Boards, proposes to develop an air quality monitoring program to evaluate impacts from OHV use in BLM designated "open areas" within PM2.5 and PM10 nonattainment areas in the West Mojave Planning Area (WEMO). A recent court remand order on the WEMO Plan has directed the BLM to increase emphasis on air quality monitoring of OHV open areas. There are eight open areas within the WEMO area (Olancha Dunes, Spangler, Dove Springs, Jawbone, El Mirage, Stoddard Valley, Johnson Valley, and Rasor. This assessment would provide an analysis of the existing air quality monitoring network, identify BLM managemen-specific questions that need to be answered by a monitoring program, and, if necessary, define additional monitoring site and equipment needs that fit within the existing monitoring framewrok.
Proposed activities described above do not have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment.
