4 Alternatives

Three alternatives were identified for analysis in the EIS. These are defined as follows:

  • To renew the Federal Grant for 30 years, which is the proposed action and the BLM's preferred alternative. Under this alternative, current operations would be authorized to continue for 30 more years.

    More information about the Proposed Action is available in the FEIS Volume 2, Section 2.2, Alternatives: Proposed Action. Renew Federal Grant for 30 Years.

  • To renew the Federal Grant for less than 30 years. Under this alternative, current operations would be authorized to continue for some period less than 30 years.

    More information about this alternative is available in the FEIS Volume 2, Section 2.3, Alternatives: Renew Federal Grant for less than 30 Years.

  • To not renew the Federal Grant, which is the no-action alternative. Under this alternative, TAPS operations would cease at the end of the current Federal Grant (January 22, 2004). The BLM would require the TAPS Owners to remove the TAPS and restore the ROW to a condition specified by the BLM.
  • More information about the no-action alternative is available in the FEIS Volume 2, Section 2.4, Alternatives: No-Action Alternative: Do Not Renew Federal Grant.
