Blueways Program Dissolved

January 8, 2014 State of Wyoming No Comments
Lummis

Responding to pressure from members of the Western Caucus, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell has dissolved the National Blueways System.  The Secretary’s action also dissolves the National Blueways Committee, which was composed entirely of federal officials and which claimed the authority to unilaterally designate entire river watersheds as “National Blueways.”  These designations held the potential to expand the reach of the federal government over non-navigable waters currently under state jurisdiction. For over a year, members of the Western Caucus have systematically maintained the lack of legal authority for the Blueways program and its potential to disrupt state-endowed water rights and local conservation efforts.  Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis applauds the decision saying, “River and watershed management is of critical importance to the west and there are countless examples of effective conservation efforts at the state and local level, where they belong.”
