Study of Snowmobiles in National Parks Delayed

January 19, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

The National Park Service has delayed release of a comprehensive environmental review of the use of snowmobiles in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, saying it needs additional time.

The study was to be released Monday on the Internet. It now is expected to be posted Feb. 4, the Park Service said.

The Interior Department agreed to the supplemental environmental impact statement as part of a settlement of a lawsuit filed by the snowmobile industry.

The industry sued when the Clinton administration proposed phasing out snowmobile use in the park, citing concerns over the machines' effects on wildlife and the environment.
