Reclaim and reseed late this fall following disturbance to take advantage of winter <br />moisture. <br />o Approval is given for the drill site locations inspected on 9/1/09. If other locations in this <br />area are proposed for drilling, the notice must be modified and field checked by BLM. <br />o During wet weather conditions, no mud blading would be allowed. When road conditions <br />are such that vehicles create ruts deeper than 4 inches, drilling and vehicle activities will <br />be temporarily suspended. <br />o The operator is required to control weeds until the site is reclaimed in accordance with <br />Mesa County regulations.
