"News" piece on an agreement between the state's Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL)
"News" piece on an agreement between the state's Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL) and the National Park Service (NPS) to retain the "wild and scenic river" designation for the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. At a legislative committee workshop this week, BPL plans to amend its bill that calls for a transfer of legal rights as a permanent crossing from the defunct Schedule Brook Bridge to the "temporary" one at Henderson Brook. The agreement with the NPS requires the state to re-evaluate bridges, dams, structures and the type and number of access points to the waterway. Ken Olson of Allagash Partners said he believes that if the BPL proceeds with the Henderson Brook Bridge, there will be problems with the NPS and with obtaining a clean water permit from the Army Corps of Engineers.
