    Description

    This report focuses on the dynamic geologic processes that affect a travertine system within the Fossil Creek Wild and Scenic River (WSR) corridor, and the geologic hazards and mineral potential within the larger watersheds to assist in the establishment of management directions and site-specific improvements for protecting and enhancing river values of Fossil Creek. The National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act created by Congress in 1968 is notable for protecting the special character of designated rivers, and identifying appropriate use and development that does not adversely affect those special characters. The development of a long-range management plan, Fossil Creek Comprehensive River Management Plan (Fossil Creek CRMP), will result in revisions to the Land and Resource Management Plan for both the Coconino and Tonto National Forests.
