PUBLIC LAW 101-628—NOV. 28, 1990 104 STAT. 4473 ness Act (or any similar reference) shall be deemed to be a reference to the date of enactment of this Act. (c) MAP AND LEGAL DESCRIPTION,— As soon as practicable after enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall file a map and a legal description of each wilderness area designated under this title with the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs of the United States House of Representatives and with the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of the United States Senate. Such map and description shall have the same force and effect as if included in this title, except that correction of clerical and typographical errors in such legal description and map may be made. Copies of such map and legal description shall be on file and available for public inspection in the Office of the Director, Bureau of Land Management, United States Department of the Interior, and in the appropriate office of the Bureau of Land Management in Arizona. (d) No BUFFER ZONES.— The Congress does not intend for the designation of wilderness areas in the State of Arizona pursuant to this title to lead to the creation of protective perimeters or buffer zones around any such wilderness area. The fact that nonwilderness activities or uses can be seen or heard from areas within a wilderness shall not, of itself, preclude such activities or uses up to the boundary of the wilderness area. (e) FISH AND WILDLIFE. —As provided in paragraph (7) of section 4(d) of the Wilderness Act, nothing in this title or in the Wilderness Act shall be construed as affecting the jurisdiction or responsibilities of the State of Arizona with respect to wildlife and fish on the public lands located in that State. (f) LIVESTOCK. —(1) Grazing of livestock in wilderness areas designated by this title, where established prior to the date of the enactment of this Act, shall be administered in accordance with section 4(d)(4) of the Wilderness Act and the guidelines set forth in Appendix A of the Report of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs to accompany H.R. 2570 of the One Hundred First Congress (H. Rept. 101-405). (2) The Secretary is directed to review all policies, practices, and regulations of the Bureau of Land Management regarding livestock grazing in Bureau of Land Management administered wilderness areas in Arizona in order to insure that such policies, practices, and regulations fully conform with and implement the intent of Congress regarding grazing in such areas, as such intent is expressed in this title. (g) WATER. —(1) With respect to each wilderness area designated by this title, Congress hereby reserves a quantity of water sufficient to fulfill the purposes of this title. The priority date of such reserved rights shall be the date of enactment of this Act. (2) The Secretary and all other officers of the United States shall Claims, take steps necessary to protect the rights reserved by paragraph (1), including the filing by the Secretary of a claim for the quantification of such rights in any present or future appropriate stream adjudication in the courts of the State of Arizona in which the United States is or may be joined and which is conducted in accordance with the McCarran Amendment (43 U.S.C. 666). (3) Nothing in this title shall be construed as a relinquishment or reduction of any water rights reserved or appropriated by the United States in the State of Arizona on or before the date of enactment of this Act.
