Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Public Land Order.
This order partially revokes a public land order and a Secretarial Order insofar as they affect 276.57 acres of public land withdrawn for the Bureau of Reclamation's Fryingpan-Arkansas and the Arkansas Valley Reclamation Projects. The Bureau of Reclamation has determined that the lands are no longer needed for project purposes. This revocation will allow for disposal of these lands by exchange. The lands have been and will remain open to mineral leasing. The lands continue to be segregated by a proposed land exchange.
