      permeability to water increasing erosive surface runoff”. As noted by Cornish () “the quality of water emanating from virgin forested catchments is generally of the highest order. A reduction of quality may occur as a consequence of operations associated with logging, and this is frequently due to an increase in stream. In recent years, the Pacific Northwest has been the focus of substantial research and controversy over the effects of logging and road building on hillslope erosion, stream discharge, and water quality. Concerns range from possible increases in the frequency of debris flows to habitat deterioration for salmonid fishes and other aquatic life.

      Dahlgren () studied the effects of timber harvesting on stream water quality and nitrogen cycling in the Casper Creek watershed. The author collected stream water quality samples from both control and treatment (clearcut) watersheds and completed a nutrient cycling by: The Impact of Forest Management on Water Supply and Quality Forest management can have either detrimental or positive effects on watershed supply and quality. The type of effect depends on the type of operation(eg. harvesting vs. reforestation), the way it is conducted, and the view point of the land manager(eg. more or less water yield).

The first site, “Stone Hill Estates,” is a residential development near Ithaca. The second is a commercial site in Albany. preservative both in the water and in sediments, even during the initial period of high leaching. For each specific type of wood preservative, recommendations are provided for minimizing the risks to aquatic life. In summary, the use of pressure treated wood in water is unlikely to have significant impacts on aquatic Size: KB.

The observed effects must be further tested by stream-flow studies, in which approved timber-cutting methods are applied to water-producing areas.

Such studies (already in operation) can test only one or two desirable cutting methods, and. impacting water quality. Erosion Forest management activities associated with timber harvesting can affect the physical, chemical, and biological properties of the soil.

If these activities increase soil erosion, then water quality may be decreased through stream sedimentation with an accompanying loss of long-term site and stream Size: KB.

The effect of 11% thinning on selected stream water properties in an oak-beech forest ecosystem in the Belgrad Forest of Istanbul, Turkey was studied with a paired catchment experiment.
