Released On: January 04, 2013
Action is needed to comply with federal regulations prohibiting any unauthorized or exclusive recreational or residential use of Reclamation land as defined under 43 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 429.
The Draft EA outlines three alternatives:
No Action Alternative - This alternative assumes that no federal action would be taken and Reclamation lands would not be sold into private ownership.
Removal Alternative - All facilities encroaching upon federal lands would be removed and the area would be restored to a more natural state.
Preferred Disposal Alternative - Sale of the encroached-upon Reclamation lands and an additional 100-foot fire break for wildfire safety. The potential land sale would encompass 3.53 acres around the 2-acre Camper's Cove Resort. Once sold, the area would become private property.
