    Description

    Present concern for the potential impacts land use activities can have on the water resource has prompted an increased interest in evaluating the effects of forest management practices on Water yield and quality. The most widespread water quality problem associated with forest management and in particular silviculture and related road construction activities is accelerated site erosion with subsequent increased sedimentation of freshwater streams and lakes.
