dc.description 148 pp. Figures, tables, appendices, references. The 33.8-mile segment of the North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River from Soda Springs powerhouse downstream to Rock Creek is located exclusively within Douglas County in the southwestern portion of Oregon and within the Umpqua River Drainage Basin, an area of approximately 4,580 square miles. Approximately 25.4 miles lie within the Umpqua National Forest and 8.4 miles within the Bureau of Land Management. The Umpqua River Basin is the eleventh largest drainage basin in the State of Oregon. Captured July 26, 2007. en
dc.description.abstract Proposes five alternate management strategies. Alternative A emphasizes natural enhancement of the Outstandingly Remarkable Values (fishery, water quality and quantity, recreation, scenery and cultural resources), while calling for less overall use of the corridor. Alternative B is the No Action alternative. This alternative protects the ORV's and significant values while having only the voluntary boating guidelines and maximum facility capacity to restrict recreation use. Alternative B1 attempts to maintain existing recreational use of the corridor - particularly boating use - as defined by use levels measured in 1990. This is the Current Use Alternative. Developments proposed under this alternative would serve to better accommodate already existing levels of use. All the ORV's and significant values in the corridor will continue to be maintained or enhanced. Alternative C, while allowing a slight increase in recreational use of the corridor, has more restrictions than the No Action alternative to limit use. All the ORV's and significant values in the corridor will continue to be maintained or enhanced. Alternative D allows maximum recreational utilization of the corridor. However, the identified Outstandingly Remarkable Values continue to be maintained or enhanced. en
