Air Navigation Hazards

The BLM will ensure that the locations of tall structures associated with solar energy facilities that could pose a hazard to air navigation are noted on aerial navigation hazard maps.

Upon issuance of a right-of-way (ROW) authorization that includes meteorological or power towers, or other tall structures that could pose a hazard to air navigation (including Department of Defense [DoD] training and operations), the BLM, after coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and DoD, will ensure that the locations of such facilities are noted on aerial navigation hazard maps for low-level flight operations that may be undertaken by units of the armed forces, the BLM and other Federal or state agencies for fire operations, wild horse and burro censuses and gathers, wildlife inventories, facility maintenance, or other activities.
