The goal of the Scenic Rivers Act is to protect selected rivers or river segments of the State with outstanding scenic, recreational, geologic, botanical, fish, wildlife, historic, or cultural values. The program allows for three categories of rivers – natural, scenic, and recreational – that call for varying levels of restrictions on water and land use of the river area. The Act contains procedural information on designating rivers, and the website of the Department of Natural Resources contains more information about the ten river segments that have been designated thus far.
