The Chattooga and the ACA

The ACA has continued efforts to partner with American Whitewater (AW) in an effort to open the Chattooga River's headwaters to boaters. This week, the ACA signed AW's letter of petition to the United States Forest Service opposing the environmental assessment (EA) of the titled "Managing Recreation Uses in the Upper Segment of the Chattooga Wild and Scenic River Corridor.” The EA violates many basic laws, regulations, and policies regarding land and resource management, and "transparently aims to reach a predetermined goal of limiting paddling." We will continue to work with AW to try to bring equity to the recreational use of the Chattooga and open its waters to boaters.
