Off-Road Vehicle Designation for the San Angelo Project, Texas

AGENCY: Bureau of Reclamation, Interior.

[[Page 28981]]


ACTION: Notice of off-road vehicle designation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces the Bureau of Reclamation's designation 
of areas for authorized off-road vehicle (ORV) use on Federal lands 
surrounding Twin Buttes Reservoir, which is part of the Bureau of 
Reclamation's San Angelo Project in Tom Green County, Texas.

DATES: This ORV designation is effective immediately and is permanent 
until canceled, amended, or replaced by the Bureau of Reclamation.

ADDRESSES: A copy of the off-road designation, including the 
Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact, is 
available at https://www.usbr.gov/gp/otao/.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Trent Parish, Bureau of 
Reclamation, Oklahoma-Texas Area Office, 5316 Highway 290 West, Suite 
110, Austin, TX 78735; (512) 899-4150; or email jparish@usbr.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The use of off-road vehicles on public lands 
associated with Twin Buttes Reservoir, TX must be designated in 
accordance with 43 CFR 420 and other applicable Federal rules and 
regulations. In recognition of this, and with the prerequisite to 
ensure compliance with such Federal regulations, Reclamation, Texas 
Parks Wildlife Department, and the City of San Angelo completed a 
comprehensive inventory and condition assessment of existing resources, 
and coordinated extensively with local stakeholders to seek input from 
the public on preferred ORV uses, as well on overall recreation 
priorities. Federal lands were evaluated according to criteria outlined 
in 43 CFR 420.22 to determine their suitability for ORV use. This 
included all Federal lands associated with the San Angelo Project and 
Twin Buttes Reservoir located within Tom Green County, Texas. The 
assessment resulted in the proposed designation of 73 miles of trails 
and three ORV areas. This designation is the culmination of resource 
considerations and public involvement integrated into an Environmental 
Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact (19-18-TX-SA) that were 
completed in accordance with the National Environmental Protection Act 
of 1969.
    The ORV designation includes:
    (a) Approximately 56 miles of designated access routes. Access 
routes provide reasonable access to lands surrounding Twin Buttes 
Reservoir's North and South Pools.
    (b) Approximately 17 miles of Motorcycle/All-Terrain Vehicle (Moto/
ATV) routes. Moto/ATV routes are a network of one-directional trails 
designated for motorized use by motorcycles and small ATVs
    (c) Approximately 338 acres of ORV areas. The ORV areas are 
comprised of three separate tracts of land with variable terrain 
requiring more diverse ORV skill levels.
