BLM-Alaska Announces the Delta River Special Recreation Management Area Approved Plan


Glennallen, AK – The Bureau of Land Management in Alaska today released its approved Delta River Special Recreation Management Area Plan. The plan will guide recreation management on the Delta River for the next 15-20 years.
 
The Finding of No Significant Impact, Decision Record and Approved Plan for the Delta River Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) and East Alaska Resource Management Plan Amendment (Approved Plan) is available on the web at http://www.blm.gov/ak/st/en/prog/planning.html.
 
The Approved Plan provides for a mix of river recreation uses and user groups while managing to protect the Delta River environment and the identified Outstandingly Remarkable Values (ORV). It maintains a setting that supports diverse recreational opportunities, integrates resource protection with an appropriate range of visitor uses and is aimed at minimizing social conflicts and protecting river resources with an emphasis on education and interpretive outreach.

he BLM manages more land – 256 million surface acres – than any other federal agency. Most of this public land is located in 12 Western States, including 75 million in Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, and cultural resources on the public lands.
