This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Notice of closure to motor vehicle traffic and limitation of public access to day use only on public lands. The lands are located on the east side of the Lower Colorado River adjacent to Laguna Dam.
Notice is hereby given that all motor vehicle access is prohibited and public use is limited to daylight hours only in the area identified as the Protection and Security Zone of Laguna Dam. The closure area is located within T.7 S., R.22 W., Sec. 14, NW1/4.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
Public lands adjacent to Laguna Dam, which are located within the Protection and Security Zone Area, are closed to motor vehicles, and public access is limited to day use only. This area is being closed to protect public health and safety, to prevent further resource and environmental degradation and for the protection and security of Laguna Dam. The closure will also directly benefit the public by reducing health and safety problems presently occurring. This closure will reduce problems associated with trespass, dust, illegal tree cutting, soil compaction, illegal trash and sewage disposal, unauthorized use of adjacent fee facilities and human-caused fires.
These conditions are occurring and have intensified with increasing numbers of campers and other users located within this confined area. Authority for this action is contained in 43 CFR 8364.1. This closure to motor vehicle traffic use and limitation on public use shall apply to all persons and shall remain in effect until further notice.
Exemptions to this order are granted to law enforcement, emergency vehicles, and agency personnel in the course of official duties. All other exemptions to this order are by written authorization of the Yuma Field Office Manager only.
Maps of this area are available at the Yuma Field Office, 2555 Gila Ridge Road, Yuma, Arizona.
