DescriptionUrbanization, particularly in the crowded Northeast, has created a new environment. Asphalt and concrete have replaced hundreds of square miles of soil, buildings have replaced trees on much of the land, and sewers have replaced streambeds in many areas. As a result, the hydrology of this land is changing rapidly. To determine the effects of this expanding urbanization on forested watersheds, the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station has studied streamflow records of forested and urbanized watersheds. This paper is a report of that study.
