alternative sites because the land described is the only land that 
encompasses the Spanish Creek Campground.
    No additional water rights need to be acquired to fulfill the 
purpose of the requested withdrawal.

either of the individuals listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT

including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available

information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you may 
ask us to withhold your personally identifying information from public 
review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
    Notice is hereby given that an opportunity for a public meeting is 
afforded in connection with the application for withdrawal. All 
interested persons who desire a public meeting for the purpose of being 
heard on the application for withdrawal must submit a written request 
to the BLM California State director no later than November 7, 2016. If 
the authorized officer determines that a public meeting will be held, a 
notice of the time and place will be published in the Federal Register 
and a local newspaper at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the 
meeting.

rights, the land described in this notice will be segregated from 
location and entry under the United States mining laws, unless the 
application is denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved prior 
to that date. Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or
