UW bulletin recommends corrective solutions for oil, gas reclamation on federal land

UW bulletin recommends .... coverA new University of Wyoming Extension bulletin addresses common compliance concerns for interim oil and gas reclamation on federal lands.

The bulletin is a joint effort by the Bureau of Land Management and UW Extension to improve resources for field personnel to identify problems and take corrective actions.

“Our goals for the bulletin focus on improved compliance during the life of the well and other facilities,” says Assistant Professor and extension restoration ecologist Kristina Hufford.  “Many compliance concerns can be caught early during routine site visits, and visual inspections contribute to cost-effective monitoring.”

The bulletin addresses operations on federal lands, but also provides useful information for environmental managers, private landowners and others working with the oil and gas industry.

The bulletin is available for free download here at the UW Extension publication site and at issuu.com.
