This order opens the lands to the Act of Congress dated January 12, 1891, as amended by the Act of Congress dated March 1, 1907, to facilitate the issuance of a trust patent to the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe. The lands will remain withdrawn from all forms of settlement and entry under the terms of an Order of the Secretary of the Interior dated February 2, 1907.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Bureau of Reclamation has determined that the lands are no longer needed for reclamation purposes as previously withdrawn and has requested the partial revocation. These lands are included in an overlapping reservation on behalf of the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe, therefore the lands will remain withdrawn from all forms of settlement and entry. The Bureau of Indian Affairs has requested that the Bureau of Land Management issue a trust patent for the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe's reservation along the Colorado River in San Bernardino County. The lands are being opened to the Act of Congress dated January 12, 1891 (26 Stat. 712), as amended by the Act of Congress dated March 1, 1907 (34 Stat. 1015, 1022), to facilitate the issuance of the trust patent.
