Wild and Scenic Rivers Act

As outlined in the February 21, 2012 Federal Register, General Condition 16 specifically states:

"No activity may occur in a component of the National Wild and Scenic River System, or in a river officially designated by Congress as a study river for possible inclusion in the system while the river is in an official study status, unless the appropriate Federal agency with direct management responsibility for such river, has determined in writing that the proposed activity will not adversely affect the Wild and Scenic River designation or study status.  Information on Wild and Scenic Rivers may be obtained from the appropriate Federal land management agency responsible for the designated Wild and Scenic River or Study River (e.g., National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)".

Visit the National Wild and Scenic Rivers website to see if your project is located on a wild and scenic river system or in a study river. 

Or, contact your local Corps Field Office for further information.
