Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 233 / Tuesday, December 5, 2006 / Notices New Mexico Principal Meridian County Line Site T. 23 N., R. 10 E., Sec. 14, lot 4; Sec. 15, lot 4. ycherry on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Quartzite Site T. 24 N., R. 11 E., Sec. 32, lots 5 to 8, inclusive, and SW1⁄4SE1⁄4. The areas described aggregate 264.39 acres in Taos and Rio Arriba Counties. The purpose of the proposed extension is to continue the withdrawal created by PLO No. 6675 for an additional 20-year term to protect the recreational values and the Federal investment in the Bureau of Land Management’s Quartzite and County Line Recreational Sites on the Rio Grande. As extended, the withdrawal would not alter the applicability of those public land laws governing the use of land under lease, license, or permit or governing the disposal of the mineral or vegetative resources other than under the mining laws. The use of a right-of-way or interagency or cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain nondiscretionary uses and would not provide adequate protection of the Federal investment in the Quartzite and County Line Recreational Sites. There are no suitable alternative sites available because the Quartzite and County Line Recreational Sites are already constructed on the abovedescribed public lands. No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension. Records relating to the application may be examined by interested parties by contacting Lora Yonemoto at the above address or 505–751–4709.
