Dust and Riparian Areas
When traveling on an access route, be concerned about the dust you create with your ORV, especially in residential areas. Adjust to a slower speed if necessary to keep dust creation to a minimum.
Riparian areas are the green strips of vegetation along streams, rivers, and lakes. They help prevent erosion, filter sediment to protect water quality, and provide food and shelter for fish and wildlife.
- Avoid riding in riparian areas, which are damaged easily.
- If you must cross a soft or muddy area, go slowly and avoid spinning your tires.
