T. 35 N., R. 27 E., Secs. 6, 7, 18, 19, 30, and 31. The restriction area, (129,173 acres) includes the entire Black Rock Desert playa. The temporary restrictions will apply from August 18, 2021 until 11:59 p.m. on October 31, 2021. The temporary restrictions are necessary because the BLM anticipates increased visitation and use of the Black Rock Desert playa. The proposed Burning Man event was cancelled by the permit applicant for the second year in a row. The Burning Man event historically has attracted up to 80,000 participants to what has been traditionally called Black Rock City, Nevada. As a result, many members of the public who had planned on attending that event have instead expressed an interest in informal gatherings on the playa throughout the summer of 2021. The BLM has received many inquiries and has reviewed available information online and has determined that use of the playa is likely to be high. These temporary restrictions are necessary to provide a safe environment for members of the public visiting the Black Rock Desert playa as well as special recreation permittees. The temporary restrictions will also protect public land resources by addressing likely impacts associated with increased use of the Black Rock Desert playa. A temporary restriction order, under the authority of 43 CFR 8364.1, is appropriate because the restrictions listed below are specifically tailored to the time frame that is necessary to provide a safe environment for the public and to protect public land resources while avoiding imposing restrictions that may not be necessary in the area during the remainder of the year. The BLM will post copies of these temporary restrictions and an associated map in kiosks at access points to the Black Rock Desert playa as well as at the Gerlach Post Office, Bruno’s Restaurant, Empire Store, Friends of Black RockHigh Rock offices, the BLM-Nevada Black Rock Station near Gerlach, and the BLM-California Applegate Field Office. The BLM will also make the materials available on the BLM external web page at: https://www.blm.gov. In addition to the Nevada Collateral Forfeiture and Bail Schedule as authorized by the United States District Court, District of Nevada and under the authority of Section 303(a) of FLPMA, 43 CFR 8360.0–7 and 43 CFR 8364.1, the BLM will apply and enforce the following temporary restrictions within the Black Rock Desert playa from VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Aug 17, 2021 Jkt 253001 August 18, 2021, through October 31, 2021: Temporary Restrictions 1.

Background In September 2019, the BLM issued a Decision Record on an Environmental Assessment (EA) to limit camping to designated sites and developed campgrounds in the Klondike Bluffs Mountain Bike Focus Area and a nearby isolated 160-acre parcel of BLMadministered land that is completely surrounded by lands managed by the State of Utah. During the EA process, the BLM identified the need to establish enforceable supplementary rules concerning camping at these locations. The BLM has documented significant increases in visitation numbers and resulting pressures on camping areas in the Moab Field Office. Therefore, the BLM has determined these proposed rules are necessary to increase sustainable camping and recreation opportunities, provide for visitor health and safety, prevent undue degradation of natural and cultural non-renewable resources, and promote high-quality outdoor recreation opportunities. During the 15-day public comment period for the EA, the BLM received 14 comments, of which 13 were in support of the proposal. The proposal was also supported by Grand County, Utah. The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development commented and offered monetary assistance with building a campground in the Klondike Bluffs area to enhance the quality of the world-class recreation opportunities.

    The restriction area, (129,173 acres) includes the entire Black 
Rock Desert playa. The temporary restrictions will apply from August 
18, 2021 until 11:59 p.m. on October 31, 2021.

    The temporary restrictions are necessary because the BLM 
anticipates increased visitation and use of the Black Rock Desert 
playa. The proposed Burning Man event was cancelled by the permit 
applicant for the second year in a row. The Burning Man event 
historically has attracted up to 80,000 participants to what has been 
traditionally called Black Rock City, Nevada. As a result, many members 
of the public who had planned on attending that event have instead 
expressed an interest in informal gatherings on the playa throughout 
the summer of 2021. The BLM has received many inquiries and has 
reviewed available information online and has determined that use of 
the playa is likely to be high. These temporary restrictions are 
necessary to provide a safe environment for members of the public 
visiting the Black Rock Desert playa as well as special recreation 
permittees. The temporary restrictions will also protect public land 
resources by addressing likely impacts associated with increased use of 
the Black Rock Desert playa. A temporary restriction order, under the 
authority of 43 CFR 8364.1, is appropriate because the restrictions 
listed below are specifically tailored to the time frame that is 
necessary to provide a safe environment for the public and to protect 
public land resources while avoiding imposing restrictions that may not 
be necessary in the area during the remainder of the year.
    The BLM will post copies of these temporary restrictions and an 
associated map in kiosks at access points to the Black Rock Desert 
playa as well as at the Gerlach Post Office, Bruno's Restaurant, Empire 
Store, Friends of Black Rock-High Rock offices, the BLM-Nevada Black 
Rock Station near Gerlach, and the BLM-California Applegate Field 
Office. The BLM will also make the materials available on the BLM 
external web page at: https://www.blm.gov.
    In addition to the Nevada Collateral Forfeiture and Bail Schedule 
as authorized by the United States District Court, District of Nevada 
and under the authority of Section 303(a) of FLPMA, 43 CFR 8360.0-7 and 
43 CFR 8364.1, the BLM will apply and enforce the following temporary 
restrictions within the Black Rock Desert playa from August 18, 2021, 
through October 31, 2021:

Temporary Restrictions

prohibited.
    2. Camping use is limited to the flat and un-vegetated playa

elements, such as shade tents.
    4. Ignition of fires other than a campfire is prohibited, unless 
specified by a fire prevention order. Campfires may only be burned in 
containers that are sturdily elevated six (6) inches above the playa

falling onto the playa surface. Plastic and nonflammable materials may 
not be burned in campfires. Burning of construction materials, pallets,

    5. Possessing, discharging, using or allowing the use of fireworks,

    6. Possessing, shooting, or causing to burn; explosives or 
explosive material, to include binary explosive targets is prohibited.
    7. The discharge and dumping of grey water or black water onto the 
playa/ground surface is prohibited. Grey water is defined as water that 
has been used for cooking, washing, dishwashing, or bathing and/or 
contains soap, detergent, or food scraps/residue, regardless of whether 
such products are biodegradable or have been filtered or disinfected. 
Black water is defined as wastewater containing feces, urine and/or 
flush water.
    8. Depositing human waste (liquid and/or solid) on the playa/ground 
surface is prohibited.
