River Restoration (and Jason Carey) is who Grand County is working with for the RICDs on the Upper Colorado River. I believe that Grand County or possibly River Restoration will set up an account on Mountain Buzz so they can answer a lot of these questions. BLM is a neutral partner... We are willing to allow Grand County and River Restoration look for ideal places on the Upper Colorado River for a RICD. They have identified a section from where Inspiration Flats Road comes down to the river (close to where the fire was last summer) down past the new campground. Jason was surveying the river this fall (in the snow!) to find the best place for the RICD. I have not heard from him or Grand County as to the exact location that he proposes is the best spot. We have told Grand County, River Restoration and other interested parties our issues with parking, boats coming down the river, etc. Once they have chosen the best spot (and found some funding), BLM will have to do an Environmental Assessment before anything is started. As more information comes available, I will continue to post it here. If you have detailed questions you can contact Lurline Underbrink Curran, Grand County Manager, (970) 725-3347.
