    The State of California has embarked upon a Long-Term Monitoring Program whose primary goal is to assess the effectiveness of the Forest Practice Rules and Review Process in protecting the beneficial uses of waters from the impacts of timber operations on private timberlands. The Board of Forestry's Monitoring Study Group concluded that hillslope monitoring should be used to assess Rule implementation and effectiveness at preventing erosion and maintaining canopy cover, while instream monitoring would be used to assess conditions and trends in water quality and stream channels.
