About the RMAC

The principle duty of the Rivers Management Advisory Committee is to advise the Department of Environmental Services (DES) in implementing the Rivers Management and Protection Program (RMPP). Among its advisory duties, the RMAC is responsible for reviewing nominations to designate additional rivers into the RMPP and for preparing a recommendation to the DES Commissioner on the merits of the nomination. Another important responsibility of the RMAC is to advise the DES on the adoption of rules for the protection of instream flow. The RMAC is also responsible for reviewing and making recommendations on plans to dispose of state-owned property along or providing access to a river.
