"News" piece on expanding the intense debate over the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. Some advocate going beyond management issues that center on the river corridor to look at protection of the large watersheds that drain into the Allagash, while others say it's also important to establish a long-term partnership with the National Park Service (NPS). However, for the moment, the Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL) is concentrating on completing a mitigation plan with the park service that would result in an after-the-fact federal water quality permit for Churchill Dam, which was built in 1997. A tentative agreement between BPL and NPS stipulates that BPL will reopen the 1999 management plan to incorporate the intent of the "wild" river designation. A public forum suing the University of Maine ITV system will be conducted by BPL Jan. 10 in four locations to receive comment on the proposed agreement.
