This report addresses the scenic resources surrounding Flaming Gorge Reservoir and the Green River Corridor. The focus is on potential visual impacts to changes in shoreline exposure resulting from fluctuating ongoing water levels and downstream water flows. Discussion will include scenic resources on the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area (NRA) and the Green River Corridor. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USDA Forest Service) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have developed systems for the administration of scenic qualities on Federal lands (Scenery Management System, USDA Forest Service, 1995, 1974; Visual Resource System, BLM, 1991). Both agency systems are addressed where applicable.
