Description
Summary:This study is being conducted as one in a series of studies to be submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for licensing of the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project in Alaska. The objective of this study is to contribute data to the recreation resources study (Study 12.5) concerning the relationship between river flows and river recreation opportunities and uses on the Susitna River with a focus on how the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project would effect such opportunities and uses. The study area (comprising the three selected river reaches) extends from the George Parks Highway Bridge (at river mile 83.3 near the Y road junction) up to the Denali Highway Susitna River Bridge (at river mile 291). The study documents the flows for a variety of motorized and non-motorized watercraft using the Susitna River for recreation and as a transportation corridor. Likewise, the study documents ice-dependent recreation and transportation activities during the winter. This report documents the methods and results of river recreation surveys conducted in 2013.
