Document - Skagit Wild and Scenic comment letter 31OCT2008

Abstract

American Whitewater strongly supports Wild and Scenic River designation of the Skagit River from the Gorge powerhouse to the National Recreation Area (NRA) boundary, and Goodell Creek from its headwaters to its mouth. This reach of the Skagit and Goodell Creek are exceptional and deserve permanent protection from future water development and other harmful projects that could impair their free-flowing character, outstanding values, or water quality. As part of the Ross Lake General Management Plan, we concur with the preliminary conclusions that the Skagit River be recommended for inclusion in the national Wild and Scenic Rivers system.
