DescriptionControl of sediment from logging roads in California’s redwood region is important to protecting streams inhabited by endangered salmonids. Both private and public landowners have limited resources to devote to road erosion control, and must make difficult choices about which roads to treat and how to treat them. We are developing operations research models to address road management questions in both spatial and temporal terms. These models explore the management implications of ongoing erosion, stochastic failures, and option values such as the ability to use roads for fire control and other management activities
