A meeting in Jordan Valley is among three planned by the Bureau of Land Management to inform the public, and allow for comments, on the recently released Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Tri-state Fuel Breaks Project.  

The project area consists of about 3.6 million acres of land within Malheur County and in neighboring Owyhee County in Idaho. This project is designed to reduce flammable vegetation along roadways to provide both firefighter safety and opportunities for firefighters to more effectively limit the spread of large wildfires      

The meeting in Jordan Valley will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Jordan Valley Lions Club, 902 U.S. 95.

Other meetings are planned for Nov. 4 at the BLM Boise District Office and Nov. 6 at the Owyhee County Museum in Murphy.
