Non-WSA Lands with Wilderness Characteristics Review Findings
Within the Richfield Field Office, the BLM evaluated 31 areas totaling 848,500 acres for their wilderness characteristics.  Of these areas, the BLM identified 682,600 acres in 29 areas as meeting the criteria for "non-WSA lands with wilderness characteristics".  More information regarding non-WSA lands with wilderness characteristics is available in Chapter 3 of the DRMP/DEIS and in the background documents below.
1999 Utah Wilderness Inventory and Revision
The 1999 Utah Wilderness Inventory was conducted by the Bureau of Land Management between 1996 and 1999 to determine whether certain public lands in Utah possess wilderness characteristics.  As a result of public comment and subsequent internal review of inventory files and field evaluations, adjustments were made to the boundaries of wilderness character areas identified in the 1999 inventory.  For information about these adjustments, please click on the Revisions to the 1999 Utah Wilderness Inventory
