What is the responsibility of the federal study agency for a river authorized for study under Section 5(a) of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act and found ineligible?

Once such a river segment has been found to be ineligible, the agency will describe the basis for this finding in the study report and follow its internal procedures to transmit the report to the Congress in accordance with Section 7(b) of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act.
