Therefore, it constitutes a withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1–3(e)).

There are no suitable alternative sites, since the land described contains the resources that need protection. No water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the withdrawal. The potential for locatable minerals is considered to be low. The purpose of the withdrawal is to protect spring water quality and quantity, to preserve the existing trees and riparian vegetation, to maintain and improve migratory bird habitat, and to maintain and encourage use of a valuable recreation site. Porter Spring is an important stopover for migratory birds traveling to and from Central and South America. The application will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300.
