This land has been used in trespass by KerrMcGee Chemical Corp. to dispose of boiler ash and is no longer required for Federal purposes. The land is currently classified as intensive use under the CDCA plan, which does not allow for sale; however, the same land is being unclassified under the West Mojave Plan to allow for disposal of land through a direct sale.

The proposed action is consistent with the objectives, goals, and decisions of the West Mojave Plan. An Environmental Assessment (EA) and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been prepared for this proposed sale. The EA and FONSI are available for public review and comment in the Ridgecrest Field Office. A copy may be requested from Janet Eubanks, Ridgecrest Realty Specialist at (951) 697–5376.
