WINNEMUCCA — The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Winnemucca District, Humboldt River Field Office has issued a Decision Record (DR) to move forward with the Shamrock Communications ROW Project, a 1,469-foot tower with a beacon that includes a transmitter building, an electrical distribution line and road access. The project involves 67 acres of public lands located about 22 miles northeast of Fernley in the Jessup area north of Interstate 80, in Churchill County.

Shamrock recently purchased several radio licenses allowing it to serve portions of several northern Nevada counties. The service area covers a 75-mile radius from the site, reaching portions of Churchill, Lyon, Pershing, Humboldt, and Washoe counties.

The environmental assessment, the DR and the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) are available on the BLM Winnemucca website at www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/wfo.html. Copies of the documents are also available at the Winnemucca District Office at 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd., during regular business hours 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except federal holidays.

For more information, contact Debbie Dunham, Winnemucca District, Humboldt River Field Office, at 623-1500 or d1dunham@blm.gov.
