Recreation Area

Project Focus Team

The OU-3 ROD includes remediation of Lower Basin recreational use areas to reduce human exposure to lead and other metals. Some priority recreational use areas were identified in the ROD with the understanding that other recreational areas will be evaluated for cleanup based on factors such as risk of exposure, location and use. The Recreation Area PFT is completing an inventory of developed and dispersed recreation sites in the entire basin and is developing Recreation Management Strategy and Guidelines involving agencies, local communities, impacted land owners and other stakeholders. Many agencies and entities, including BLM, Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG), the CDA Tribe, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR), Kootenai County Parks and Waterways, and USFS, manage recreational sites in the Lower Basin. All entities will benefit from the establishment of a coordinated strategy to protect human health at recreational areas.
