Temporary Emergency Rule Closing Portions of Clark Fork River & Warm Springs WMA
ARM Rules - 03/29/2013

Department of Environmental Quality and Department of Justice, Natural Resource Damage Program requested 1 3/4 miles of the Clark Fork River, ten acres of the Warm Springs Wildlife Management Area, and a road in the wildlife management area be closed to public occupation due to Superfund cleanup construction activities. The Superfund cleanup activities require heavy equipment with large loads in an area of recreational use. The closure is necessary so construction crews can safely operate and maneuver without potential collisions with recreationists on the river or on the land. The closure is also necessary so recreationists, including those with limited maneuverability, are not subject to potential collision with large equipment or loads being carried by heavy equipment.
