Tuolumne River Plan - documents
The Tuolumne Wild and Scenic River Draft Comprehensive Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement was available for public review and comment through March 18, 2013.
Since the initial phases of plan development in 2006, Yosemite planners have utilized the best available science, subject-matter expert input, and public comments to develop the Tuolumne River Draft Plan. The plan is available for download below. Due to the size of the document, it is broken into three volumes. Volume 1 presents the purpose and need for this plan, the river corridor boundaries and classifications, the river values and their management, a discussion of user capacity, and the alternatives for river management. Volume 2 discusses the affected environment and environmental consequences of the various alternatives, and Volume 3 contains the appendices, including the facilities analysis, determination of extent necessary for commercial services in the Wilderness portions of the Tuolumne River corridor, and the ecological restoration plan for Tuolumne Meadows.
Also available for download below is a summary guide that presents an overview of the river plan, as well as several fact sheets that discuss various topics of interest in the plan.
