Area Of Influence

Areas Of Influence (AOI) identify areas where any project located within should consider potential effects to the Threatened, Endangered, Proposed, and Candidate species and designated and proposed Critical Habitat, in reference to Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended.  AOI typically encompass larger areas than simply where the species is known to exist because of direct and indirect effects to the species and their habitat.  It is important to consider potential effects to the species and their habitat within these larger areas.  Action agencies are encouraged to refer to the Service’s Information, Planning, and Conservation System (IPAC) or contact the FWS Wyoming Ecological Services Office for additional information.  (AOI boundaries based on the best available data at time of development.  AOI will be updated as new information becomes available).

Species Information

If the proposed action may lead to consumptive use of water or have the potential to affect water quality in the Platte River System, there may be impacts to threatened and endangered species inhabiting the downstream reaches of this river system.  For more information on how to seek coverage under the ESA for water-related activities through the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program, please visit our web site at http://www.fws.gov/platteriver.
