USFS Report

As the Nez Perce Tribe & Idaho Rivers United vs. the US Forest Service megaload case slowly proceeds, this afternoon the USFS released a report titled "Perceived Values of the Middle Fork Clearwater and Lochsa River Corridor Potentially Affected by Certain Over-Legal Truck Traffic."  (That is, by megaload traffic.) You'll find the report here.

Although the top-of-page headline includes the word "study," the USFS notes:  "This paper is not an impact study..."  You may recall that on 9/12/13 (5.5 months ago), Federal Judge B. Lynn Winmill ordered the USFS to conduct a "corridor review" and consult with the Nez Perce Tribe -- a consultation yet to commence.
