Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, Amendments & Section 2(a)(ii) Additions
The files below represent the original Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, as amended, and the individual amendments since 1968. The amendments to the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act represent 16 USC, Sections 1271-1287. Also included are the Federal Register notices for Section 2(a)(ii) designations.
Section 2(a)(ii) designations are not amendments to the Act; however, these documents represent additions to the National Wild & Scenic Rivers System on an equal basis as those rivers designated through amendments to Section 3 of the Act. For more information on Section 2(a)(ii) designations, please see our white paper, Designating Rivers Through Section 2(a)(ii) of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.
