Generator Use on BLM Land

IF you plan to use a Generator at the Launch, The BLM has new requirements regarding containment

ALL Generators MUST have secondary containment sufficiently sized to capture all fluids (fuel, oil, etc.) contained within the generator itself. A sturdy shallow tote or cement mixing pan is sufficient.

Going forward, we will be checking for this at the launches. You may purchase these pans at Home Depot or Lowes. The club will have a few for sale in the trailer on a first-come, first-served basis. If you do not follow this, you will NOT be able to use a generator at the launches.

Gensets located within RV’s and Travel Trailers with permanent fuel connections are considered contained and do NOT require secondary containment.

Also, remember, Generator quiet hours are 10pm to 8am unless the night temps are over 90 degrees, then it is permissible to run them all night. 

Tent Campers, be aware if you setup next to an RV, you may hear a generator.

Contractor generators are not recommended due to their excess noise. Inverter or RV generators are preferred.
