Fees and permits are being considered for use of the Colorado River in the McInnis Canyon National Conservation Area.

The Bureau of Land Management says they've seen an increase in resource damage, user conflict and trash and waste buildup in the national conservation area.

The BLM will be analyzing a permit and fee system to help generate revenue to manage the area.

Officials say this might even mean hiring someone to stay in the area full time.

The McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area Advisory Council is holding a meeting July 16 at 4 p.m. to gather public opinion about the potential fees. The meeting will be held at Two Rivers Convention Center.
