The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to sample 498 lakes in federally designated wilderness areas and national parks during the western part of the National Surface Water Survey (NSWS). The NSWS has been undertaken to provide high quality data for evaluating the nature and extent of acid deposition throughout the United States. Sampling protocols established for the national survey call for the use of helicopters to gain access to lakes for sampling. Helicopters have already been used in the eastern and midwestern parts of the survey. The U.S. Forest Service and the National Park Service will have to decide which sampling plan for wilderness areas, if any, can be approved under the Wilderness Act of 1964.
Draft. "EPA 910/9-85-125." "March 1, 1985." Includes bibliographical references.
Contents Notes
An evaluation of the environmental impact of using helicopters and/or horses or neither as means to gain access to 498 lakes in federally designated wilderness areas and national parks during the western part of the National Surface Water Survey. The collected water samples are to study the nature and extent of acid depostion throughout the United States.
