Updated Merced River Values Draft Baseline Conditions Report Posted Online
The Merced Wild and Scenic River Values Draft Baseline Conditions Report is now available on the Merced River Plan’s research webpage located at http://www.nps.gov/yose/parkmgmt/mrp_research.htm. Due to the large file size of the document, we’ve broken it into several chapters on the website.

The report describes the condition of the Merced’s River Values--(1) free-flowing condition, (2) water quality and (3) outstandingly remarkable values--both at the time of the river’s designation in 1984 and at present. The condition of river values is crucial information in the development of the plan, and planners are using information from the Report to inform development of alternatives for the draft environmental impact statement.

We encourage you to become familiar with the major aspects of the Report. Released as a draft in April 2011, the Report may continue to be revised and amended as new information becomes available, particularly information from ongoing scientific studies.
