Sec. 1271. Congressional declaration of policy

-STATUTE-

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 dam

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.

Sec. 1273. National wild and scenic rivers system

-STATUTE-

(a) Composition; application; publication in Federal Register;

expense; administration of federally owned lands

The national wild and scenic rivers system shall comprise rivers

(i) that are authorized for inclusion therein by Act of Congress,

or (ii) that are designated as wild, scenic or recreational rivers

by or pursuant to an act of the legislature of the State or States

through which they flow, that are to be permanently administered as

wild, scenic or recreational rivers by an agency or political

subdivision of the State or States concerned that are found by the

Secretary of the Interior, upon application of the Governor of the

State or the Governors of the States concerned, or a person or

persons thereunto duly appointed by him or them, to meet the

criteria established in this chapter and such criteria

supplementary thereto as he may prescribe, and that are approved by

him for inclusion in the system, including, upon application of the

Governor of the State concerned, the Allagash Wilderness Waterway,

Maine; that segment of the Wolf River, Wisconsin, which flows

through Langlade County; and that segment of the New River in North

Carolina extending from its confluence with Dog Creek downstream

approximately 26.5 miles to the Virginia State line. Upon receipt

of an application under clause (ii) of this subsection, the

Secretary shall notify the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and

publish such application in the Federal Register. Each river

designated under clause (ii) shall be administered by the State or

political subdivision thereof without expense to the United States

other than for administration and management of federally owned

lands. For purposes of the preceding sentence, amounts made

available to any State or political subdivision under the Land and

Water Conservation Act of 1965 (16 U.S.C. 460l-4 et seq.) or any

other provision of law shall not be treated as an expense to the

United States. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to

provide for the transfer to, or administration by, a State or local

authority of any federally owned lands which are within the

boundaries of any river included within the system under clause

(ii).

(b) Classification, designation, and administration of rivers

A wild, scenic or recreational river area eligible to be included

in the system is a free-flowing stream and the related adjacent

land area that possesses one or more of the values referred to in

section 1271 of this title. Every wild, scenic or recreational

river in its free-flowing condition, or upon restoration to this

condition, shall be considered eligible for inclusion in the

national wild and scenic rivers system and, if included, shall be

classified, designated, and administered as one of the following:

(1) Wild river areas - Those rivers or sections of rivers that

are free of impoundments and generally inaccessible except by

trail, with watersheds or shorelines essentially primitive and

waters unpolluted. These represent vestiges of primitive

America.

(2) Scenic river areas - Those rivers or sections of rivers

that are free of impoundments, with shorelines or watersheds

still largely primitive and shorelines largely undeveloped, but

accessible in places by roads.

(3) Recreational river areas - Those rivers or sections of

rivers that are readily accessible by road or railroad, that may

have some development along their shorelines, and that may have

undergone some impoundment or diversion in the past.

Sec. 1275. Additions to national wild and scenic rivers system

-STATUTE-

(a) Reports by Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture;

recommendations to Congress; contents of reports

The Secretary of the Interior or, where national forest lands are

involved, the Secretary of Agriculture or, in appropriate cases,

the two Secretaries jointly shall study and submit to the President

reports on the suitability or nonsuitability for addition to the

national wild and scenic rivers system of rivers which are

designated herein or hereafter by the Congress as potential

additions to such system. The President shall report to the

Congress his recommendations and proposals with respect to the

designation of each such river or section thereof under this

chapter. Such studies shall be completed and such reports shall be

made to the Congress with respect to all rivers named in section

1276(a) (1) through (27) of this title no later than October 2,

1978. In conducting these studies the Secretary of the Interior and

the Secretary of Agriculture shall give priority to those rivers

(i) with respect to which there is the greatest likelihood of

developments which, if undertaken, would render the rivers

unsuitable for inclusion in the national wild and scenic rivers

system, and (ii) which possess the greatest proportion of private

lands within their areas. Every such study and plan shall be

coordinated with any water resources planning involving the same

river which is being conducted pursuant to the Water Resources

Planning Act (42 U.S.C. 1962 et seq.).

Each report, including maps and illustrations, shall show among

other things the area included within the report; the

characteristics which do or do not make the area a worthy addition

to the system; the current status of land ownership and use in the

area; the reasonably foreseeable potential uses of the land and

water which would be enhanced, foreclosed, or curtailed if the area

were included in the national wild and scenic rivers system; the

Federal agency (which in the case of a river which is wholly or

substantially within a national forest, shall be the Department of

Agriculture) by which it is proposed the area, should it be added

to the system, be administered; the extent to which it is proposed

that such administration, including the costs thereof, be shared by

State and local agencies; and the estimated cost to the United

States of acquiring necessary lands and interests in land and of

administering the area, should it be added to the system. Each

such report shall be printed as a Senate or House document.

(b) Study of report by affected Federal and State officials;

recommendations and comments; transmittal to President and

Congress

Before submitting any such report to the President and the

Congress, copies of the proposed report shall, unless it was

prepared jointly by the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary

of Agriculture, be submitted by the Secretary of the Interior to

the Secretary of Agriculture or by the Secretary of Agriculture to

the Secretary of the Interior, as the case may be, and to the

Secretary of the Army, the Secretary of Energy, the head of any

other affected Federal department or agency and, unless the lands

proposed to be included in the area are already owned by the United

States or have already been authorized for acquisition by Act of

Congress, the Governor of the State or States in which they are

located or an officer designated by the Governor to receive the

same. Any recommendations or comments on the proposal which the

said officials furnish the Secretary or Secretaries who prepared

the report within ninety days of the date on which the report is

submitted to them, together with the Secretary's or Secretaries'

comments thereon, shall be included with the transmittal to the

President and the Congress.

(c) Publication in Federal Register

Before approving or disapproving for inclusion in the national

wild and scenic rivers system any river designated as a wild,

scenic or recreational river by or pursuant to an act of a State

legislature, the Secretary of the Interior shall submit the

proposal to the Secretary of Agriculture, the Secretary of the

Army, the Secretary of Energy, and the head of any other affected

Federal department or agency and shall evaluate and give due weight

to any recommendations or comments which the said officials furnish

him within ninety days of the date on which it is submitted to

them. If he approves the proposed inclusion, he shall publish

notice thereof in the Federal Register.

(d) Areas comprised by boundaries; scope of study report

The boundaries of any river proposed in section 1276(a) of this

title for potential addition to the National Wild and Scenic Rivers

System shall generally comprise that area measured within

one-quarter mile from the ordinary high water mark on each side of

the river. In the case of any designated river, prior to

publication of boundaries pursuant to section 1274(b) of this

title, the boundaries also shall comprise the same area. This

subsection shall not be construed to limit the possible scope of

the study report to address areas which may lie more than

one-quarter mile from the ordinary high water mark on each side of

the river.

the original ''section 1204 of the Alaska National Interest Lands

Conservation Act'' and has been editorially translated as section

3183 of this title, which is section 1203 of that Act, as the

probable intent of Congress, in view of that Act being enacted

without a section 1204 and section 1203 of that Act relating to the

Bristol Bay Cooperative Region Plan.

CHAPTER 28 - WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS

-HEAD-

Sec. 1277. Land acquisition

-STATUTE-

(a) Grant of authority to acquire; State and Indian lands; use of

appropriated funds; acquisition of tracts partially outside

component boundaries; disposition of lands

(1) The Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of

Agriculture are each authorized to acquire lands and interests in

land within the authorized boundaries of any component of the

national wild and scenic rivers system designated in section 1274

of this title, or hereafter designated for inclusion in the system

by Act of Congress, which is administered by him, but he shall not

acquire fee title to an average of more than 100 acres per mile on

both sides of the river. Lands owned by a State may be acquired

only by donation or by exchange in accordance with subsection (d)

of this section. Lands owned by an Indian tribe or a political

subdivision of a State may not be acquired without the consent of

the appropriate governing body thereof as long as the Indian tribe

or political subdivision is following a plan for management and

protection of the lands which the Secretary finds protects the land

and assures its use for purposes consistent with this chapter.

Money appropriated for Federal purposes from the land and water

conservation fund shall, without prejudice to the use of

appropriations from other sources, be available to Federal

departments and agencies for the acquisition of property for the

purposes of this chapter.

(2) When a tract of land lies partially within and partially

outside the boundaries of a component of the National Wild and

Scenic Rivers System, the appropriate Secretary may, with the

consent of the landowners for the portion outside the boundaries,

acquire the entire tract. The land or interest therein so acquired

outside the boundaries shall not be counted against the average

one-hundred-acre-per-mile fee title limitation of subsection (a)(1)

of this section. The lands or interests therein outside such

boundaries, shall be disposed of, consistent with existing

authorities of law, by sale, lease, or exchange.

(b) Curtailment of condemnation power in area 50 per centum or more

of which is owned in fee title by Federal or State government

If 50 per centum or more of the entire acreage outside the

ordinary high water mark on both sides of the river within a

federally administered wild, scenic or recreational river area is

owned in fee title by the United States, by the State or States

within which it lies, or by political subdivisions of those States,

neither Secretary shall acquire fee title to any lands by

condemnation under authority of this chapter. Nothing contained in

this section, however, shall preclude the use of condemnation when

necessary to clear title or to acquire scenic easements or such

other easements as are reasonably necessary to give the public

access to the river and to permit its members to traverse the

length of the area or of selected segments thereof.

(c) Curtailment of condemnation power in urban areas covered by

valid and satisfactory zoning ordinances

Neither the Secretary of the Interior nor the Secretary of

Agriculture may acquire lands by condemnation, for the purpose of

including such lands in any national wild, scenic or recreational

river area, if such lands are located within any incorporated city,

village, or borough which has in force and applicable to such lands

a duly adopted, valid zoning ordinance that conforms with the

purposes of this chapter. In order to carry out the provisions of

this subsection the appropriate Secretary shall issue guidelines,

specifying standards for local zoning ordinances, which are

consistent with the purposes of this chapter. The standards

specified in such guidelines shall have the object of (A)

prohibiting new commercial or industrial uses other than commercial

or industrial uses which are consistent with the purposes of this

chapter, and (B) the protection of the bank lands by means of

acreage, frontage, and setback requirements on development.

(d) Exchange of property

The appropriate Secretary is authorized to accept title to

non-Federal property within the authorized boundaries of any

federally administered component of the national wild and scenic

rivers system designated in section 1274 of this title or hereafter

designated for inclusion in the system by Act of Congress and, in

exchange therefor, convey to the grantor any federally owned

property which is under his jurisdiction within the State in which

the component lies and which he classifies as suitable for exchange

or other disposal. The values of the properties so exchanged

either shall be approximately equal or, if they are not

approximately equal, shall be equalized by the payment of cash to

the grantor or to the Secretary as the circumstances require.

(e) Transfer of jurisdiction over federally owned property to

appropriate Secretary

The head of any Federal department or agency having

administrative jurisdiction over any lands or interests in land

within the authorized boundaries of any federally administered

component of the national wild and scenic rivers system designated

in section 1274 of this title or hereafter designated for inclusion

in the system by Act of Congress is authorized to transfer to the

appropriate secretary jurisdiction over such lands for

administration in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.

Lands acquired by or transferred to the Secretary of Agriculture

for the purposes of this chapter within or adjacent to a national

forest shall upon such acquisition or transfer become national

forest lands.

(f) Acceptance of donated land, funds, and other property

The appropriate Secretary is authorized to accept donations of

lands and interests in land, funds, and other property for use in

connection with his administration of the national wild and scenic

rivers system.

(g) Retained right of use and occupancy; termination; fair market

value; ''improved property'' defined

(1) Any owner or owners (hereinafter in this subsection referred

to as ''owner'') of improved property on the date of its

acquisition, may retain for themselves and their successors or

assigns a right of use and occupancy of the improved property for

noncommercial residential purposes for a definite term not to

exceed twenty-five years or, in lieu thereof, for a term ending at

the death of the owner, or the death of his spouse, or the death of

either or both of them. The owner shall elect the term to be

reserved. The appropriate Secretary shall pay to the owner the

fair market value of the property on the date of such acquisition

less the fair market value on such date of the right retained by

the owner.

(2) A right of use and occupancy retained pursuant to this

subsection shall be subject to termination whenever the appropriate

Secretary is given reasonable cause to find that such use and

occupancy is being exercised in a manner which conflicts with the

purposes of this chapter. In the event of such a finding, the

Secretary shall tender to the holder of that right an amount equal

to the fair market value of that portion of the right which remains

unexpired on the date of termination. Such right of use or

occupancy shall terminate by operation of law upon tender of the

fair market price.

(3) The term ''improved property'', as used in this chapter,

means a detached, one-family dwelling (hereinafter referred to as

''dwelling''), the construction of which was begun before January

1, 1967, (except where a different date is specifically provided by

law with respect to any particular river) together with so much of

the land on which the dwelling is situated, the said land being in

the same ownership as the dwelling, as the appropriate Secretary

shall designate to be reasonably necessary for the enjoyment of the

dwelling for the sole purpose of noncommercial residential use,

together with any structures accessory to the dwelling which are

situated on the land so designated.

Sec. 1278. Restrictions on water resources projects

-STATUTE-

(a) Construction projects licensed by Federal Energy Regulatory

Commission

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission shall not license the

construction of any dam, water conduit, reservoir, powerhouse,

transmission line, or other project works under the Federal Power

Act (41 Stat. 1063), as amended (16 U.S.C. 791a et seq.), on or

directly affecting any river which is designated in section 1274 of

this title as a component of the national wild and scenic rivers

system or which is hereafter designated for inclusion in that

system, and no department or agency of the United States shall

assist by loan, grant, license, or otherwise in the construction of

any water resources project that would have a direct and adverse

effect on the values for which such river was established, as

determined by the Secretary charged with its administration.

Nothing contained in the foregoing sentence, however, shall

preclude licensing of, or assistance to, developments below or

above a wild, scenic or recreational river area or on any stream

tributary thereto which will not invade the area or unreasonably

diminish the scenic, recreational, and fish and wildlife values

present in the area on the date of designation of a river as a

component of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. No

department or agency of the United States shall recommend

authorization of any water resources project that would have a

direct and adverse effect on the values for which such river was

established, as determined by the Secretary charged with its

administration, or request appropriations to begin construction of

any such project, whether heretofore or hereafter authorized,

without advising the Secretary of the Interior or the Secretary of

Agriculture, as the case may be, in writing of its intention so to

do at least sixty days in advance, and without specifically

reporting to the Congress in writing at the time it makes its

recommendation or request in what respect construction of such

project would be in conflict with the purposes of this chapter and

would affect the component and the values to be protected by it

under this chapter. Any license heretofore or hereafter issued by

the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission affecting the New River of

North Carolina shall continue to be effective only for that portion

of the river which is not included in the National Wild and Scenic

Rivers System pursuant to section 1273 of this title and no project

or undertaking so licensed shall be permitted to invade, inundate

or otherwise adversely affect such river segment.

(b) Construction projects on rivers designated for potential

addition to system

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission shall not license the

construction of any dam, water conduit, reservoir, powerhouse,

transmission line, or other project works under the Federal Power

Act, as amended (16 U.S.C. 791a et seq.), on or directly affecting

any river which is listed in section 1276(a) of this title, and no

department or agency of the United States shall assist by loan,

grant, license, or otherwise in the construction of any water

resources project that would have a direct and adverse effect on

the values for which such river might be designated, as determined

by the Secretary responsible for its study or approval -

(i) during the ten-year period following October 2, 1968, or

for a three complete fiscal year period following any Act of

Congress designating any river for potential addition to the

national wild and scenic rivers system, whichever is later,

unless, prior to the expiration of the relevant period, the

Secretary of the Interior and, where national forest lands are

involved, the Secretary of Agriculture, on the basis of study,

determine that such river should not be included in the national

wild and scenic rivers system and notify the Committee on Energy

and Natural Resources of the Senate and the Committee on Natural

Resources of the House of Representatives, in writing, including

a copy of the study upon which the determination was made, at

least one hundred and eighty days while Congress is in session

prior to publishing notice to that effect in the Federal

Register: Provided, That if any Act designating any river or

rivers for potential addition to the national wild and scenic

rivers system provides a period for the study or studies which

exceeds such three complete fiscal year period the period

provided for in such Act shall be substituted for the three

complete fiscal year period in the provisions of this clause (i);

and

(ii) during such interim period from the date a report is due

and the time a report is actually submitted to the Congress; and

(iii) during such additional period thereafter as, in the case

of any river the report for which is submitted to the President

and the Congress, is necessary for congressional consideration

thereof or, in the case of any river recommended to the Secretary

of the Interior for inclusion in the national wild and scenic

rivers system under section 1273(a)(ii) of this title, is

necessary for the Secretary's consideration thereof, which

additional period, however, shall not exceed three years in the

first case and one year in the second.

Nothing contained in the foregoing sentence, however, shall

preclude licensing of, or assistance to, developments below or

above a potential wild, scenic or recreational river area or on any

stream tributary thereto which will not invade the area or diminish

the scenic, recreational, and fish and wildlife values present in

the potential wild, scenic or recreational river area on the date

of designation of a river for study as provided for in section 1276

of this title. No department or agency of the United States shall,

during the periods hereinbefore specified, recommend authorization

of any water resources project on any such river or request

appropriations to begin construction of any such project, whether

heretofore or hereafter authorized, without advising the Secretary

of the Interior and, where national forest lands are involved, the

Secretary of Agriculture in writing of its intention so to do at

least sixty days in advance of doing so and without specifically

reporting to the Congress in writing at the time it makes its

recommendation or request in what respect construction of such

project would be in conflict with the purposes of this chapter and

would affect the component and the values to be protected by it

under this chapter.

(c) Activities in progress affecting river of system; notice to

Secretary

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and all other Federal

agencies shall, promptly upon enactment of this chapter, inform the

Secretary of the Interior and, where national forest lands are

involved, the Secretary of Agriculture, of any proceedings,

studies, or other activities within their jurisdiction which are

now in progress and which affect or may affect any of the rivers

specified in section 1276(a) of this title. They shall likewise

inform him of any such proceedings, studies, or other activities

which are hereafter commenced or resumed before they are commenced

or resumed.

(d) Grants under Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965

Nothing in this section with respect to the making of a loan or

grant shall apply to grants made under the Land and Water

Conservation Fund Act of 1965 (16 U.S.C. 460l-4 et seq.).

Nothing in this chapter shall affect the applicability of the

United States mining and mineral leasing laws within components of

the national wild and scenic rivers system except that -

(i) all prospecting, mining operations, and all other

activities on mining claims which, in the case of a component of

the system designated in section 1274 of this title, have not

heretofore been perfected or which, in the case of a component

hereafter designated pursuant to this chapter or any other Act of

Congress, are not perfected before its inclusion in the system

and all mining operations and other activities under a mineral

lease, license, or permit issued or renewed after inclusion of a

component in the system shall be subject to such regulations as

the Secretary of the Interior or, in the case of national forest

lands, the Secretary of Agriculture may prescribe to effectuate

the purposes of this chapter;

(ii) subject to valid existing rights, the perfection of,

issuance of a patent to, any mining claim affecting lands within

the system shall confer or convey a right or title only to the

mineral deposits and such rights only to the use of the surface

and the surface resources as are reasonably required to carrying

on prospecting or mining operations and are consistent with such

regulations as may be prescribed by the Secretary of the Interior

or, in the case of national forest lands, by the Secretary of

Agriculture; and

(iii) subject to valid existing rights, the minerals in Federal

lands which are part of the system and constitute the bed or bank

or are situated within one-quarter mile of the bank of any river

designated a wild river under this chapter or any subsequent Act

are hereby withdrawn from all forms of appropriation under the

mining laws and from operation of the mineral leasing laws

including, in both cases, amendments thereto.

Regulations issued pursuant to paragraphs (i) and (ii) of this

subsection shall, among other things, provide safeguards against

pollution of the river involved and unnecessary impairment of the

scenery within the component in question.

(b) Withdrawal from appropriation of minerals in Federal river beds

or bank areas; prospecting, leases, licenses, and permits

The minerals in any Federal lands which constitute the bed or

bank or are situated within one-quarter mile of the bank of any

river which is listed in section 1276(a) of this title are hereby

Nothing contained in this subsection shall be construed to forbid

prospecting or the issuance of leases, licenses, and permits under

the mineral leasing laws subject to such conditions as the

Secretary of the Interior and, in the case of national forest

lands, the Secretary of Agriculture find appropriate to safeguard

the area in the event it is subsequently included in the system.

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this subsection or any

other provision of this chapter, all public lands which constitute

the bed or bank, or are within an area extending two miles from the

bank of the river channel on both sides of the river segments

referred to in paragraphs (77) through (88) of section 1276(a) of

(a) Public use and enjoyment of components; protection of features;

management plans

Each component of the national wild and scenic rivers system

shall be administered in such manner as to protect and enhance the

values which caused it to be included in said system without,

insofar as is consistent therewith, limiting other uses that do not

substantially interfere with public use and enjoyment of these

values. In such administration primary emphasis shall be given to

protecting its esthetic, scenic, historic, archeologic, and

scientific features. Management plans for any such component may

establish varying degrees of intensity for its protection and

development, based on the special attributes of the area.

(b) Wilderness areas

Any portion of a component of the national wild and scenic rivers

system that is within the national wilderness preservation system,

as established by or pursuant to the Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1131

et seq.), shall be subject to the provisions of both the Wilderness

Act and this chapter with respect to preservation of such river and

its immediate environment, and in case of conflict between the

provisions of the Wilderness Act and this chapter the more

restrictive provisions shall apply.

(c) Areas administered by National Park Service and Fish and

Wildlife Service

Any component of the national wild and scenic rivers system that

is administered by the Secretary of the Interior through the

National Park Service shall become a part of the national park

system, and any such component that is administered by the

Secretary through the Fish and Wildlife Service shall become a part

of the national wildlife refuge system. The lands involved shall

be subject to the provisions of this chapter and the Acts under

which the national park system or national wildlife system, as the

case may be, is administered, and in case of conflict between the

provisions of this chapter and such Acts, the more restrictive

provisions shall apply. The Secretary of the Interior, in his

administration of any component of the national wild and scenic

rivers system, may utilize such general statutory authorities

relating to areas of the national park system and such general

statutory authorities otherwise available to him for recreation and

preservation purposes and for the conservation and management of

natural resources as he deems appropriate to carry out the purposes

of this chapter.

(d) Statutory authorities relating to national forests

The Secretary of Agriculture, in his administration of any

component of the national wild and scenic rivers system area, may

utilize the general statutory authorities relating to the national

forests in such manner as he deems appropriate to carry out the

purposes of this chapter.

(e) Cooperative agreements with State and local governments

The Federal agency charged with the administration of any

component of the national wild and scenic rivers system may enter

into written cooperative agreements with the Governor of a State,

the head of any State agency, or the appropriate official of a

political subdivision of a State for State or local governmental

participation in the administration of the component. The States

and their political subdivisions shall be encouraged to cooperate

in the planning and administration of components of the system

which include or adjoin State- or county-owned lands.

necessary to accomplish these purposes.

(d) State jurisdiction over included streams

The jurisdiction of the States over waters of any stream included

in a national wild, scenic or recreational river area shall be

CHAPTER 28 - WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS

Sec. 1286. Definitions

-STATUTE-

As used in this chapter, the term -

(a) ''River'' means a flowing body of water or estuary or a

section, portion, or tributary thereof, including rivers, streams,

creeks, runs, kills, rills, and small lakes.

(b) ''Free-flowing'', as applied to any river or section of a

river, means existing or flowing in natural condition without

impoundment, diversion, straightening, rip-rapping, or other

modification of the waterway. The existence, however, of low dams,

diversion works, and other minor structures at the time any river

is proposed for inclusion in the national wild and scenic rivers

system shall not automatically bar its consideration for such

inclusion: Provided, That this shall not be construed to authorize,

intend, or encourage future construction of such structures within

components of the national wild and scenic rivers system.

(c) ''Scenic easement'' means the right to control the use of

land (including the air space above such land) within the

authorized boundaries of a component of the wild and scenic rivers

system, for the purpose of protecting the natural qualities of a

designated wild, scenic or recreational river area, but such

control shall not affect, without the owner's consent, any regular

use exercised prior to the acquisition of the easement. For any

designated wild and scenic river, the appropriate Secretary shall

treat the acquisition of fee title with the reservation of regular

existing uses to the owner as a scenic easement for purposes of

this chapter. Such an acquisition shall not constitute fee title

ownership for purposes of section 1277(b) of this title.
