The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has examined 30.12 acres of public land in Sierra County, New Mexico, and found them suitable for classification for conveyance under the provisions of the Recreation and Public Purposes (R&PP) Act, as amended. A closed landfill currently exists on the property under an R&PP Act lease, and the City of Truth or Consequences proposes to continue its use for the existing landfill. The land is not needed for any Federal purpose and is encumbered by an existing landfill. A conveyance would allow the City of Truth or Consequences to continue monitoring the landfill in accordance with the approved closure plan.
