Title: Ozark National Scenic Riverways; Motorized Vessels 

This final rule will amend special regulations governing the use of motorized vessels within Ozark National Scenic Riverways. The changes will allow the use of 60/40 horsepower motors in the middle sections of the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers. The rule will establish seasonal closures in the upper sections of the rivers and limit the maximum horsepower of motorized vessels in other locations. These changes are slight modifications to restrictions on motorized vessels that have been in place since 1991. The rule implements a management action that represents a compromise between user groups and was the result of a long planning process with robust community engagement. The Riverways’ Headquarters is located in Van Buren, Missouri.
