Abstract:
The role of intermittent rivers and streams in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System is explored. The past, present, and future of the National System are examined to determine what role the intermittent watercourse plays in each time frame. Arizona intermittent rivers considered as potential candidates for the National System are profiled. A case study of the San Pedro, an Arizona intermittent river, was conducted to determine if that river has Wild and Scenic potential. Questions of the intermittent watercourse type's eligibility for inclusion in the National System are addressed. The conclusion reached during the study is that, under certain conditions, intermittent rivers and streams are eligible for and merit inclusion in the National System.
