West Worland Community Gravel Pit Reopens

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announced today that the Worland community gravel pit, located west of town near the Washakie County Landfill, has reopened for public sales after a brief closure due to safety concerns.

The work during the closure resulted in a marked stockpile of gravel from which the public will be able to safely remove material. A map and informational handout will be provided whenever a permit is purchased from the Worland Field Office. Specifically, material is to be removed only from the stockpiled area, and mining or excavating of material is not permitted.

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
