Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION:

Public land order.

SUMMARY:

This Public Land Order (PLO) extends the duration of the withdrawal created by PLO No. 7422 for an additional 20-year term. PLO No. 7422 would otherwise expire on December 20, 2019. This extension is necessary to prevent incompatible uses from affecting the operation of the Diamond Fork System of the Central Utah Project, which supports Utah's use of Colorado River water for irrigation, municipal and industrial needs, hydroelectric power, conservation, and recreation. PLO No. 7422 withdrew approximately 2,795 acres of National Forest System lands from location and entry under the United States mining laws, but not from leasing under the mineral leasing laws. This Order corrects the acreage withdrawn from 2,795 acres to 2,714.22 acres with no change to the legal land description. The lands have been and will remain open to mineral leasing.

DATES:

This PLO takes effect on December 21, 2019.
