It is state policy to protect the outstanding scenic, geologic, ecologic, historic, recreational, agricultural, fish, wildlife, cultural, and other similar values of certain rivers and adjacent lands. The Department of Natural Resources is responsible for designating rivers and river segments to be classified as wild and scenic, and development and construction are restricted on or near these rivers.
