The BLM is developing a regional off-site mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake SEZ.
In the Solar PEIS, the BLM committed to establishing a regional off-site mitigation strategy for each SEZ. These regional mitigation strategies are expected to simplify and improve the mitigation process for future solar projects in SEZs.
In August of 2012, the BLM began a pilot project to develop a regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake SEZ. This process has included extensive stakeholder involvement, in the form of workshops and webinars. In April 2013 the BLM released a draft mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake SEZ and received stakeholder comments. The draft SEZ is in the process of revision and further review by the BLM.
Extensive information on the Dry Lake SEZ Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy is available on the project Web site, at: http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/lvfo/blm_programs/energy/dry_lake_solar_energy.html
