Glenwood, NM, July 9, 2018—For Immediate Release. Forest Supervisor, Adam Mendonca has signed a Temporary Closure Order Number 06-18-014 Native Fish Restoration Activity Closure Order for the Catwalk Recreation Area effective July 10 at 8:00 a.m. This closure order is for July 10 to July 11, or until rescinded.

As part of the Gila Whitewater Trout Restoration Project, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) will be using rotenone to eradicate non-native fish from the waterways in Whitewater Canyon. The Environmental Protection Agency has determined that rotenone is highly effective for selective removal of invasive fishes and that the resulting concentrations of ingredients poses little, if any, hazards to public health. Once the rotenone has been introduced, the water will then be treated with a neutralizing agent, potassium permanganate, which prevents the treated water from being carried beyond the project area. It is Federal regulation that people cannot be near the water corridor while these treatment and neutralizing processes are in place.
