VENTANA WILD RIVERS PROPOSAL
The Recreational segment accommodates the Nacimiento Road and the two adjacent campgrounds. Although it flows into Fort Hunter Liggett, none of the segments of the Nacimiento River proposed for designation are located on the military reservation. The river corridor can and should be established by the Forest Service after designation to avoid overlap with the military reservation on the northeast side of the river and Nacimiento Road. Designation will not affect military water rights to the river. Virtually all of the water in the Nacimiento River is captured by the Nacimiento Dam and Reservoir for agricultural and municipal use. Designation of upstream segments on the National Forest will not affect the dam, reservoir, or water uses.
