Clean air and clean water are the lifeblood of the North Fork Valley. Clean, safe water is crucial whether you’re an elk, fish or a human. The BLM’s preferred alternative in its Draft Resource Management Plan for the Uncompahgre Field Office (UFO) proposes to open close to 1 million acres to oil and gas leasing. The UFO Planning Area consists of Delta, Gunnison, Mesa, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miguel Counties in southwestern Colorado. The planning area does not include the Gunnison Gorge or Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Areas, which are managed under separate RMPs.
