Check this out! ---> U.S. creates first 'National Blueway'

If you're curious how a blueway differs from a water trail, Interior Department spokesman Adam Fetcher emailed this explanation to MNN: "A National Blueway encompasses the entire river, headwaters to mouth, and its watershed. It is recognized for integrating land and water management to promote resilient river systems that benefit both human and natural communities." On the other hand, "a National Water Trail is a segment of a river (and not the watershed or lands along the river) that is recognized for its recreational value." The blueway system is "based on many different authorities" vested in the Interior secretary, Fetcher adds, while water trails are designated under the authority of the National Trails Act.
