Study: Big impacts in Christo river project

Study: Big impacts in Christo river project

Federal land managers say artist Christo's plan to drape fabric over several miles of the Arkansas River in the state of Colorado would have a significant impact on bighorn sheep and historical sites.
The Bureau of Land Management released its draft environmental study Friday on Christo's "Over the River" project.
Christo wants to use a system of anchors, frames and cables to suspend 5.9 miles of fabric across eight spots along a 42-mile (68-kilometer) stretch of the river.
The draft study says more than 3,500 acres (1,400 hectares) would be disturbed.
The BLM studied six alternatives, including not carrying out the project. After a 30-day comment period and a series of public meetings, the BLM will decide which alternative it prefers. That decision isn't expected until February.
