National Wild and Scenic River System ⋄ 50th Anniversary (1968-2018)

National Wild and Scenic Rivers System
(Designations as of November 2016)

"It is hereby declared to be the policy of the United States that certain selected rivers of the Nation which, with their immediate environments, possess outstandingly remarkable scenic, recreational, geologic, fish and wildlife, historic, cultural or other similar values, shall be preserved in free-flowing condition, and that they and their immediate environments shall be protected for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Congress declares that the established national policy of dams and other construction at appropriate sections of the rivers of the United States needs to be complemented by a policy that would preserve other selected rivers or sections thereof in their free-flowing condition to protect the water quality of such rivers and to fulfill other vital national conservation purposes."
(Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, October 2, 1968)
WSR 50th Anniversary logo
As of August 2018, the National Wild and Scenic River System protects 12,754 miles of 209 rivers in 40 states and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico; this is a little more than one-quarter of one percent of the nation's rivers. By comparison, more than 75,000 large dams across the country (for example, photo at top of page of Diablo Dam & Lake on the Skagit River in Washington State) have modified at least 600,000 miles, or about 17% (possibly more than 20% — figures are best estimates) of American rivers.
