Comprehensive River Management Plan for the Black, Ontonagon,
Presque Isle, Paint, Sturgeon and Yellow Dog National Wild and Scenic
Rivers, Ottawa National Forest, Baraga, Gogebic, Houghton, Iron,
Marquette and Ontonagon Counties, MI

AGENCY: Forest Service, USDA.
ACTION: Notice of availability.


SUMMARY: In accordance with section 3(d)(1) of the Wild and Scenic
Rivers Act, the USDA Forest Service, announces the availability of the
Ottawa National Forest Comprehensive River Management Plan. On July 13,
2007, Forest Supervisor, Susan J. Spear made a decision to adopt into
the Forest Plan, the Comprehensive River Management Plan which required
an amendment to the Ottawa National Forest Plan. This management plan
outlines use levels, development levels, resource protection measures,
and general management direction for the river corridor. This amendment
is necessary to implement the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act which required
the Forest Service to develop a management plan for the Black,
Ontonagon, Presque Isle, Paint, Sturgeon and Yellow Dog Rivers. Interim
direction was identified in the Forest Plan as Management Area 8.1. The
environmental assessment documents the analysis of alternatives for
managing the Black, Ontonagon, Presque Isle, Paint, Sturgeon and Yellow
Dog Wild and Scenic Rivers in accordance with the Wild and Scenic
Rivers Act. This decision is subject to appeal pursuant to Forest
Service Regulations 36 CFR part 217. Appeals must be filed within 45
days from the date of publication in the newspaper of record the
Ironwood Daily Globe, Ironwood, Michigan.
    The environmental assessment is available for public review at the
Ottawa National Forest Supervisor's Office in Ironwood, Michigan or on
the Ottawa National Forest Web page at <A HREF="http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/ottawa/recreation/wsr/index.htm";>

DATES: Effective Date: Implementation of this decision shall not occur
for 7 days following the publication of the legal notice of the
decision in the Ironwood Daily Globe, Ironwood, Michigan.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Information may be obtained by
