Comment On Instream Projects

Public comments carry weight

If you have been alarmed at – or had a close call – with some of the dangerous projects being built in our rivers, we encourage you to submit a letter to any and all entities responsible for the funding, construction, oversight, and safety.   We suggest you include both those responsible for the construction, if you can identify them, and your elected representatives.

If you know of upcoming instream projects, submit your comments in advance, preferably within the “comment period.”  However don’t let the end of the comment period deter you from expressing concern.

The River Safety Council has submitted comments on many projects.  Feel free to copy text from any of the letters that follow and modify them to express concerns you may have.  We provide this information in the hope that citizens will not be deterred from providing comments because of lack of familiarity with the issues or the process.
