    Description

    Controversy over fuel treatments on public forestlands often focuses on the potential for such treatments to contribute to cumulative watershed impacts. If a fuel treatment project modifies the production or transport of water, sediment, or woody debris through a channel network, downstream habitats and aquatic resources may respond adversely to the changes. If these changes augment impacts from previous or on-going activities, the fuel treatment project will have increased the overall level of impact-the cumulative impact-to downstream resources.
