The 63,000 acre area is a popular location for off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation. A variety of other recreation activities also occur within the CCMA, including hunting, rock-hounding, wildlife watching, and hiking. This is a unique geological area with serpentine soils that contain naturally occurring asbestos. BLM has issued the Closure Order in response to the results of a study conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that concludes public use activities could expose an individual to excess lifetime cancer risks. Closure Order: Pursuant to 43 CFR 8364.1, BLM has issued an Order closing approximately 31,000 acres of public land to all forms of entry and public use within the Clear Creek Management Area (CCMA). The area is referred to as the Serpentine Area of Environmental Concern (ACEC) and portions of adjacent BLM-administered lands in lower Clear Creek Canyon, located in southern San Benito County and western Fresno County, California. The lands include portions of Mount Diablo Principal Meridian: Township 17 South, Ranges 11 and 12 East; Township 18 South, Ranges 11, 12 and 13 East, and Township 19 South, Range 13 East. This closure is necessary to protect public land users from human health risks associated with exposure to airborne asbestos in the CCMA based upon a final report issued by the Environmental Protection Agency that concludes that public use activities could expose an individual to excess lifetime cancer risks. The order will remain in effect while the BLM completes a Resource Management Plan for the CCMA to determine if and how visitor use can occur without associated excess health risks.
