    Description

    Rapidly chancing land use patterns are having a significant impact on watershed management and the included elements of fuel management and fire protection. The complexity of watershed management was defined in the Watershed Management Council's publication prepared for the first conference. This publication, California's Watersheds, emphasized that all land use activity has an impact, that individual impacts can be cumulative and even synergistic. In California, the impact of development on fire effects and fire protection is a grand example.
