PRICE — The Bureau of Land Management is giving the public 30 days to provide input on proposed changes to its river permitting system for the Desolation and Gray canyons of the Green River.
The proposal would convert the existing permitting system for private boaters from a first-come, first-served, call-in reservation process to an online lottery reservation process on the website Recreation.gov. If the proposal is approved, private river permit lottery applications for the 2013 season would be accepted between Dec. 1 and Jan. 31.
Recreation.gov serves as the federal government's collective source of outdoor recreation opportunities on federal lands and waters administered by government agencies. The conversion would make the river permitting process for the Desolation and Gray canyons more consistent with other river permit systems across the country, according to the BLM.
Details of the proposed changes can be found on the BLM website. All public comments must be received in writing by Nov. 10 at the BLM Price Field Office, 125 S. 600 West, Price, UT 84501, or by email at email@example.com.
