    Many persons question the wisdom of harvesting timber in forested drainages that supply municipal water. In the Douglas-fir region of the Pacific Northwest there are examples of logging that support this viewpoint but others as well that tend to refute it. Some municipal water supplies have been damaged and yet in other cases relatively little harm has been done.
