Strict fire rules in effect
The State Park Division today
announced that stricter fire rules
are in effect for the Deschutes
River Scenic Waterway beginning
Wednesday, June 10.
The fire restrictions are in response
to a Bureau of Land Management
declaration of extreme fire danger
in the area.
The rules prohibit fires of all
kinds, including briquets, except in
enclosed structures. Smoking is also
banned, except in enclosed build
ings, enclosed motor vehicles or in
boats on the river.
Commercially manufactured camp
stoves and lanterns may be used if
fueled by propane or white gas.
The stricter fire rules are being
imposed earlier than in previous
years due to warmer temperatures
and lower rainfall in the rivet
canyons, according to John Lilly,
assistant Parks Division administrator.
Columbia Gorge guidelines criticized
Recently issued guidelines for
the Columbia River Gorge National
Scenic Area are being criticized by
numerous interested parties includ
ing four Northwest senators.
The bill designating a Columbia
River Gorge National Scenic Area
was signed by President Reagan
November 17, 1986. The bill took
five years to pass and was sur
rounded by much controversy. And,
the controversy continues.

The draft is contradictory in say
ing that scenic values will not be
affected "within one-half mile of
key viewing areas" when the Act
clearly says the scenic values shall
not be adversely affected at all.
The act also withdraws all fed
eral lands in the Scenic Area from
mining activities and yet the draft
guidelines address the existence of
mineral patents in the area.

will become a "National Litigation
