Portions of the Youghiogheny River are protected under the Scenic and Wild Rivers Act, and development on or near these areas is restricted. COMAR section 08.15.02 addresses permitted uses and allowable and prohibited agricultural, mining, commercial, industrial, and recreational activities in these areas, as well as stream alteration and diversion.
