SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with Section 7 of the Taylor Grazing Act, (43 U.S.C. 315f), and Executive Order No. 6910, the following described public land in Sweetwater County, Wyoming, has been examined and found suitable for classification for lease and conveyance under the provisions of the R&PP Act, as amended, (43 U.S.C. 869 et seq.):

Sixth Principal Meridian, Wyoming,

T. 20 N., R. 101 W.

Sec. 28, SE1/4SE1/4NE1/4.

The land described contains 10.00 acres, more or less.

In accordance with the R&PP Act, the Sweetwater County Solid Waste Disposal District #1 (District) filed an application to purchase the above-described 10.00 acres of public land which has been leased to the District for solid waste disposal purposes since 1982. The land was classified for lease under the provisions of the R&PP Act and was originally leased as a sanitary landfill. The lease stopped operating as a landfill in 1992 and was converted to a solid waste transfer station. The transfer station has been in operation since then in conformance with the terms and conditions of the lease. Before the conveyance can occur, the land must be classified for conveyance under the provisions of the R&PP Act. Additional detailed information pertaining to this application, plan of development, and site plan is in case file WYW 74694, located in the BLM Rock Springs Field Office at the above address.

The land is not needed for any Federal purpose. The conveyance is consistent with the Rock Springs Resource Management Plan dated August 8, 1986, and would be in the public interest. The patent, when issued, will be subject to the provisions of the R&PP Act and applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior, and will contain the following reservations to the United States:

1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches or canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945); and

2. All minerals, together with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove such deposits from the same under applicable law and such regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe.

The patent will be subject to all valid existing rights documented on the official public land records at the time of patent issuance.

Classification Comments: Interested parties may submit comments involving the suitability of the land for municipal and recreation uses. Comments on the classification are restricted to whether the land is physically suited for the proposal, whether the use will maximize the future use or uses of the land, whether the use is consistent with local planning and zoning, or if the use is consistent with State and Federal programs.

Application Comments: Interested parties may submit comments regarding the specific use proposed in the application and plan of development, whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision to convey under the R&PP Act, or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the land for R&PP use.

Confidentiality of Comments: Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Only written comments submitted by postal service or overnight mail to the Field Manager—BLM Rock Springs Field Office will be considered properly filed. Electronic mail, facsimile or telephone comments will not be considered properly filed.

Any adverse comments will be reviewed by the State Director. In the absence of any adverse comments, the classification of the land described in this notice will become effective September 23, 2008. The lands will not be available for conveyance until after the classification becomes effective.
