July 29, 2010--BLM Uncompahgre releases final wild and scenic river eligibility report (Telluride Watch)
The Bureau of Land Management Uncompahgre Field Office has released the Final Wild and Scenic River Eligibility Report for the BLM Uncompahgre Planning Area. The comment period on the Suitability Phase is now open, as well. The determination of suitability phase focuses on jurisdictional and manageability issues affecting eligible waterways.
Some members of FORU, the Friends of the River Uncompahgre, want to make sure a balance is achieved when the Montrose City Council selects a new citizens committee to create new river buffer zones.
