WILLOWS, Calif.; May 9, 2017 – The Mendocino National Forest is seeking input on the development of the Black Butte River and Cold Creek Comprehensive River Management Plan (CRMP). Public input will help determine how best to manage the river into the future.

The Northern California Coastal Wild Heritage Wilderness Act (PL 109-362) of 2006 designated the Black Butte and Cold Creek as Wild and Scenic River Segments. A CRMP is required by the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968 for each segment to provide for the protection of the river values. The CRMP will focus on protecting the river’s free-flowing condition and water quality as well as the outstanding remarkable values and classification for which the river was designated.

Details on the river segments and the scoping letter are available on the project website: or by contacting the project lead, Hilda Kwan, district hydrologist, 10025 Elk Mountain Rd., Upper Lake, CA 95458, (707) 275-1413, or email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
