About this Site

This site provides a gateway to selected BLM/USGS partner efforts.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the US Geological Survey (USGS) partnered to develop landscape-scale management approaches to better understand these challenges and support balanced stewardship of the diverse natural resources of the public lands. This site provides a gateway to some of these BLM/USGS partner efforts.

Surface Disturbance Analysis and Reclamation Tracking Tool (SDARTT)

Due to the focused importance on species and their habitats, the BLM has partnered with the USGS in an effort to create a tool which monitors 19 disturbance threats nationally. The goal is to monitor disturbance and reclamation efforts on BLM land to ensure that native species habitat is minimally affected. SDARTT is that tool.

Currently there are four field offices have disturbance and reclamation applications; Jonah Incline, Pinedale Anticline, Green River and White River. With SDARTT there is now a national disturbance and reclamation monitoring tool that brings together, in one application, the data from these four separate applications. One application that can be used not only to store data from any location but can also be used to analyze the data and generate reports critical to this ongoing monitoring effort.

SDARTT has two overarching goals to accomplish the vision put forth by the BLM and USGS:

  1. Build a dynamic inventory of existing validated surface disturbances pertaining to the 19 disturbance threats
  2. Provide a workflow to approve or deny new proposed project disturbances occurring near priority habitat management areas (PHMAs)

This chart displays the current and historical number of features (energy-related disturbances, roads, pipelines) tracked by SDARTT. A nationwide effort is in place to continue to upload existing and new surface disturbances into the SDARTT portal. This chart is interactive (click on an area graph to display respective disturbance and reclamation acreage) and updates in real-time as new features are added to the tool.

Office–Specific Disturbance and Reclamation Applications

Data from four existing disturbance and reclamation monitoring applications are ingested into SDARTT nightly to aid in building the dynamic inventory. Presently, these applications are focused on oil and gas energy disturbances.
