West Worland Community Gravel Pit Temporarily Closed

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announced today that the west Worland community gravel pit, located west of town near the Washakie County Landfill, is temporarily closed due to safety concerns. There will be no sales while the gravel pit is closed.

The BLM is rectifying the situation and anticipates that the pit will open to the public for sales by the end of October, 2009. In addition to improved safety, the work will result in a marked stockpile of gravel from which the public will be able to remove material.

For more information, please contact BLM Geologist Marilyn Wegweiser at 307-347-5100.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
