Description

Stream reaches that have been rested from livestock grazing appear to have stable banks and more bank undercuts than grazed stream sections. Ungrazed reference streams that are similar in parent geology, precipitation, channel type, habitat types, drainage area, and stream width had greater bank stability values and lower width-todepth ratios than those of grazed and rested management sections of Silver King Creek. Power curve analysis was used to suggest the sample sizes required to monitor progress toward the desired condition.
