BLM Offer Reward for Illegal Dumping Information

Salt Lake City, Utah (Oct 14, 2009) — The Bureau of Land Management Utah, West Desert District is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the party responsible for illegally dumping 18 television and computer monitors and large pieces of furniture on BLM-administered lands in Tooele County.

The dumping occurred approximately 1 ½ miles south of I-80, Exit 77 in the Timpie Point area of Skull Valley.  BLM Utah law enforcement officers believe the dumping occurred between Sept. 24 and Oct. 11, 2009.  Additionally, the quantity and size of the items dumped suggest that more than one vehicle was involved.

Due to the toxicity of leaded glass, the television and computer monitors pose serious health hazards to both humans and the environment.  The total clean-up costs for the illegal dumping could be as much as $5,000.

The BLM is urging anyone who might have witnessed the illegal dumping or who might have information on the identity of the responsible party to contact BLM Ranger Randy Griffin at (801) 977-4314.

The BLM manages more land - 256 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
