The landfill was closed in 1974 and has continued to be closed to municipal waste disposal since the date of closure. Throughout the years, the City of Truth or Consequences has maintained the area as a closed landfill in anticipation that any future development of the property would not conflict with the approved landfill closure plan. In accordance with the R&PP Act of June 14, 1926, as amended, the City of Truth or Consequences filed an application for purchase of the above-described 30.12 acres of public land. The land is not needed for any Federal purpose. The conveyance is consistent with the White Sands Resource Management Plan, dated October 1986, and would be in the public’s interest.

Although there is no indication these materials pose any significant risk to human health, or the environment, future land uses should be limited to those which do not penetrate the liner or final cover of the landfill unless excavation is conducted subject to applicable State and Federal requirements. 6. The purchaser (patentee), by accepting a patent, covenants and agrees to indemnify, defend and hold the United States harmless from any costs, damages, claims, causes of action, penalties, fines, liabilities, and judgments of any kind or nature arising from the past, present, and future acts or omissions of the patentee or its employees, agents, contractors, lessees, or any third party, arising out of or in connection with the patentee’s use, occupancy, or operations on the patented real property.

    The area described contains 30.12 acres.

    The described public land was previously classified for lease under 
the R&PP Act on August 14, 1959, and was leased to the City of Truth or

    The landfill was closed in 1974 and has continued to be closed to 
municipal waste disposal since the date of closure. Throughout the 
years, the City of Truth or Consequences has maintained the area as a 
closed landfill in anticipation that any future development of the 
property would not conflict with the approved landfill closure plan. In 
accordance with the R&PP Act of June 14, 1926, as amended, the City of 
Truth or Consequences filed an application for purchase of the above-
described 30.12 acres of public land. The land is not needed for any 
Federal purpose. The conveyance is consistent with the White Sands 
Resource Management Plan, dated October 1986, and would be in the 
public's interest. The patent, if issued, will be subject to the

patented, and the right of the United States, or persons authorized by

    3. The patent will be subject to all valid existing rights 
documented on official public land records at the time of patent 
issuance.
    4. No portion of the land patented shall revert back to the United

Solid waste commonly includes small quantities of commercial hazardous 
waste and household hazardous waste as determined in the Resource 
Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended (42 U.S.C. 6901) and 
defined in 40 CFR 261.4 and 271.5. Although there is no indication 
these materials pose any significant risk to human health, or the 
environment, future land uses should be limited to those which do not 
penetrate the liner or final cover of the landfill unless excavation is 
conducted subject to applicable State and Federal requirements.
    6. The purchaser (patentee), by accepting a patent, covenants and 
agrees to indemnify, defend and hold the United States harmless from 
any costs, damages, claims, causes of action, penalties, fines, 
liabilities, and judgments of any kind or nature arising from the past,
