The withdrawal would not alter the applicability of those public land laws governing the use of the land under lease, license, or permit or governing the disposal of the mineral or vegetative resources. The use of a right-of-way or interagency or cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 nondiscretionary uses and therefore would not provide adequate protection of the Federal investment in the Eufaula Lake Project.
