U. S. Army Garrison Yuma Proving Ground (YPG) is revising the Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan (INRMP) in accordance with the Sikes Act (16 USC 670a) and Army Regulation 200-1. This revision is needed to better describe the goals, procedures, and management actions necessary to effectively conserve Natural Resources on YPG in Yuma/La Paz County. The purpose of this Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan (INRMP) is to guide and document the manner in which YPG sustains the military mission on the installation while managing the ecological health of our natural resources. The INRMP will ensure sound land management, environmental stewardship, and compliance with all relevant laws, regulations, and policy during mission and project planning activities resulting in no net loss of mission capacity from meeting our stewardship responsibilities.
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the YPG has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the potential for environmental effects of implementing this INRMP. Based on the evaluation in the EA, YPG has prepared a Draft Finding of No Significant Impact. (FNSI). The Draft INRMP, EA and Draft FNSI are now available for a 30-day public review period ending on October 22, 2022. The documents may be obtained on the links to the left for review.
