Wild and Scenic Rivers, California, National Park Service, environment, boundaries, 2a(ii), rivers, planningCadastre, Section 7
This data represents portions of the National Wild and Scenic River System in the northern part of the State of California. Specifically it includes sections that the National Park Service administers under Section 7 of the Wild and Scenic River (WSR) Act of the Trinity Wild and Scenic River, the Eel Wild and Scenic River, the Smith Wild and Scenic River and the Eel Wild and Scenic River. All of these rivers were designated under Section 2(a)(ii) of the WSR Act. Under Section 2(a)(ii), the State has the lead with managing the river, however, federal agencies have the responsibilities to conduct Section 7 determinations. Under Section 7 of the WSR Act, any proposed projects with a federal nexus (funding, permit, etc.) that have the potential to affect the free-flowing condition or river values needs to undergo a determination by the federal administering agency on the effects of the proposed project before the project can be implemented. For any water resource projects within the bed or banks of the river up to 1/4 mile on either side of the river, need to undergo a Section 7 determination. If a proposed project falls within these river corridors, the National Park Service would make the Section 7 determination. Please forward any proposals to Harry Williamson at firstname.lastname@example.org AND Stephen Bowes at Stephen_Bowes@nps.gov.
This data set was created by extracting the sections of the Wild and Scenic Rivers that the National Park Service has Section 7 responsibility for from the USGS National Hydrography Data (NHD). The scale of the data was 1:24,000.
