DescriptionAlthough the title of our plenary session speaks generally of ""development"", virtually all of our discussion (and that in the other two plenary sessions) dealt with the effect of forest practices. That emphasis is appropriate. Seventy percent of the State's utilizable streamflow comes from commercial forest lands. An additional 25 percent of the State's water comes from--often intermingled--brush, grass, and alpine lands. It is not surprising, therefore, that concerns about cumulative impacts concerns also focus on forested lands, and specifically upon activities relating to the harvesting of timber
